Except "make static" will helpfully build you a statically linked
icecast which still dynamically loads modules for the name service
(via nsswitch.conf, as you noted).

Yes, that's right: on a modern linux system (as far as I know), there
is no way to build a fully statically linked application which can do
hostname lookups. This can be rather a pain...
