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.
