Hm. Okay. Whatever.

If the preinst was a statically compiled binary, it could run without
/lib/libc.so.6 or /lib/ld-linux.so.2 or any other shared library, so
it would not be prone to errors caused by dependencies to other binaries
and libraries, that can break when upgrading the C library. No?

bash has a binary preinst, although its preinst is dynamically linked, but
only to libc and ld-linux.
