I guess the message is pretty self-explanatory, but current policy for
libc these days is that static linking is deprecated, and that a
statically linked libc just manually opens other libraries dynamically -
at hard coded paths, too.

One possible solution is to use an alternative libc, which ISTR asking
for, but not getting any suggestions.

As in 500 -Internal error?

Did you check the logs?  Usually there would be some output there.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
