I don't think so. The plugin can link statistically against its
while still linking against the dynamically linked C++ runtime.

I used to do that for Java extensions. The JNI library linked with all its
C++ dependencies
statically, so it's a single self-contained shared-library one could then
w/o having to mess with PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, yet still linked against
the dynamic runtime
if I recall correctly (that's over 10 years ago).

This is a legitimate use case IMHO... --DD
