Subject: interesting discussion about static linking on luajit ML

i thought some people here might be interested in a discussion that 
currently happens on

as usual, a strong bias against static linking can be seen, based on 
myths or bad experience with glibc.

especially the statement here about memory usage seems to be a common 

rich, you recently said something about this topic on irc, iirc it was 
along the lines of:
you'd need to link substantially huge parts of libc.a to use nearly as 
much memory,
as is typically wasted with relocation overhead in dynamically linked 
apps, do i remember correctly ?
