When cross-compiling on Unix for an embedded target, static libraries
are extremely important.

I also tend to link Lua statically in my Linux binaries, since it's
very small and a lot of systems don't have Lua installed--we have lots
of runtime deps, so being able to cut down on one of them (as well as
eliminating version differences) is worth the small bloat.
