That's not the problem.  The problem is that static binaries which use
libdl used to be (and perhaps still are) broken.  The reason it's
using libdl is that the nss libraries are never truly static, unless
you compile glibc with a special non-recommended option.  I have
indications that this may be fixed in glibc 2.2.2 using my current
toolchain, but my information is not complete.
