Default What are the differences of the Linux prime files?

What's the difference between the two linux files on the download page 'mprime2414.tar.gz(659KB)' and 'sprime2414.tar.gz(885KB)'?

sprime is "statically lnked"

Some releases of Linux don't install the correct dinamic libraries needed by mprime, so the GIMPS project choose to create a monolithic sprime just to help people who installed those Linux versions.
