Ok, that's what I'll do.

What some people call efficiency, I call rending a distro unmaintainable
and pimping "Linux" - To me, it's not much different from pimping a car
by installing an oxygen bottle to "make it faster".
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.
Well, your needs, i.e. "cross-distro binaries", are far
exotic. Many people before you went into trap you still seem to be
trapped into, before you, so be it :-)
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?
