You need to also count in size of shared libraries and you did not consider
the "whole thing" being crunched into a single binary (crunchgen or

However, shared libraries not being loadable from static binaries is
not that unexpected - and some locales and pam being unavailable is
a well known drawback of static linking.

Not unsolvable (hi joerg!), but not high priority nor a real bug.
