Read "info gcc" and the ld(1) manpage, search for "-static"
The error makes me wonder if you maybe lack some execution module for ELF 
or so in the kernel, output of "file dialog" and "ldd dialog" would be 
interesting. Curiously, it arose in the thread on tech-embed(?) as well, 
but then it disappeared and I never heared of the "why". (It should'nt be 
there in the first place - the error message you give seems that the 
binary is ran as /bin/sh shell script, which of course breaks. It's the 
kernel's job to include the ELF loader by default, to recognize, load & 
run ELF binaries; I wouldn't know how to disable this easily though so 
that you'd run into that)
