This is not for the faint of heart to be doing. The results can be destructive.

I'll agree here. I work with the OpenOffice.org project and someone actually attempted
to build it statically. The 150MB program grew to over 1GB in one case. I don't know
what would happen with Wine.
The real question here is why statically link this program? It is developed, built
and testing on many different platforms and Linux/UNIX distributions. Most, if not
all of these support dynamic linking.
