Ok, that's what I'll do.

It may not be at the distro level. But I think that we shouldn't prevent
users to link statically their apps when it makes them faster.

I really don't understand what trap you are speaking about. I statically 
commpile a model on a computer then copy it over to other computers
(which may have different shared libraries or even not the libraries at
all) and run it (with different parameters of course) using a simple 
script to drive all the runs. What problem is there with that?
