I thought it will be simple, but ocamlopt reorders -ccopt args and so extra bookkeeping was needed :
http://repo.or.cz/w/mldonkey.git/commit/292182f68281744123703e7d5445b005b3d74285

This leaves -lpthread -lm -lc -lstdc++ (i.e. the libs added implicitly by compiler) linked dynamically.

IIUC, this is caused by static linking to glibc in SF.net binaries. So far the previous advice is ok - either compile yourself or search for ubuntu packages (see http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/Download - there is PPA with 3.0.7 at https://launchpad.net/~a.bono/+archive/mldonkey).

But, spiralvoice, we could do better. AFAIK, nowadays, linking to glibc statically causes more portability problems than solves. Why not link to all used libs statically and dynamically to glibc? I will prepare the patch, ok?

apt-get install mldonkey-server

or compile MLDonkey yourself:
