I think static linking would make it impossibly big since the shared
libraries have their dependencies as well, if you try to static link
everything up to libC or whatever is the final thing, it can get pretty big.

Also you can't static link under Mac OS X and we know runrev likes to reuse
code. I think static linking is almost never used these days for this kind
of stuff. I've asked them the same thing during the last conference but 3
pints of some IPA prevents me from remembering the specific answer but I
recall it could not be done in a sane way.
