As Cristian said, static linking is really a false holy grail...

That said, the tool has exactly zero deps besides glibc. (where glibc in
this definition consists of libpthread, librt, libc). Hence, when it
comes to portability it gets pretty much as close to portability to
various systems as it can get. Linux systems might vary greatly in the
libraries they offer or have installed, but a glibc they all should
