This is my understanding. As long as it's just one library,
it isn't a big problem. I have a friend who is packaging
5MB of Mono libraries for an activity written in C#.
This thing obviously doesn't scale and in the long term we
may end up reinventing a full blown package manager with
dependency tracking, plus tools like apt for downloading
and installing them.

Static linking is being quickly phased out from all Linux
distros. In OS X, static linking against system libraries
is no longer allowed.
