i tested how long does it take to execute program that does nothing
main() {}

it's 16ms normally and 8ms when using static link

8ms is anyway million CPU cycles on my machine (pentium-133).
what incredibly complicated operations is doing to link such
simple programs (containing minimal set of references to libs) to do it so

I live in Poland not USA so i can protect my privacy.
