Is it possible to build ghc with static linkage to its dependencies?

Hi GHC Devs,

I'd like to build ghc for an environment (linux x86_64) that I don't fully
control, and most importantly on that environment is severely
outdated. I was wondering if I can build ghc on another linux x86_64
machine but link in all the dependencies as static libraries instead
finding them as dynamic libraries?

Thank you!
