I'm not so sure that it can be static on all platforms in the first place.
My main concern is a missing symbol required by a module that isn't
available in httpd or properly exported, which causes a runtime failure
at some unknown time *after* the server appears to successfully start;
but this could just be paranoia on my part.

I'd also rather not allow this discussion to block the above patch,
since I think we'd all agree that it is acceptable.
