Actually, given the incompetence of the glibc developpers, you do.
They use shared objects whether you want them or not. You can't
resolve localhost for instance, which is quite annoying for X
And how do you want to resolve localhost when on one box you use
files for that, on another NIS, on another NIS+, on another LDAP,
on another Berkeley DB, etc.?
Even if you only wanted to put files parsing into statically linked
programs and do the rest dynamically, what would e.g. with
#215283, where FC6 anaconda now writes localhost entry as
::1 localhost.localdomain localhost
instead of 127.0.0.1 and gethostbyname would just fail in that case?
When libnss_files.so.2 is used, this is fixable (and will be fixed
soon), otherwise you'd have to recompile all your statically linked
