Yep.  It looks that way.  Oops. 
There are other pieces that need to be built static but the basic kexec
utility should need to be.  It's probably an accidental hold over from
something else.

Anyway remove the -static from the final build line kexec/Makefile
and it should compile dynamically.

 $(KEXEC_S_OBJS): $(OBJDIR)/%.o: %.S $(OBJDIR)/%.d
         mkdir -p $(@D)
         $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $@ -c $<
         mkdir -p $(@D)
-        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -static -o $@ $(KEXEC_OBJS) $(UTIL_LIB)
+        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $@ $(KEXEC_OBJS) $(UTIL_LIB)
         @echo "KEXEC_C_SRCS $(KEXEC_C_SRCS)"
         @echo "KEXEC_C_DEPS $(KEXEC_C_DEPS)"
         @echo "KEXEC_C_OBJS $(KEXEC_C_OBJS)"
