(1) http://www.akkadia.org/drepper/no_static_linking.html
(2) it's using the nss system which lets people drop modules into the system
at anytime and change the overall lookups to use that.  statically linking a
specific subset would block that ability.  which means people using providers
like ldap would be stuck with static binaries that don't work.

i'm not going to debate the relevance of such a system nowadays as i don't
care.  purely pointing out that it's not a "political" issue (nor have you
provided any references to back up your specious claim).

it's already been provided.  build glibc w/--enable-static-nss.
