It is dynamically linked to some libraries, staticly linked to others.
Guillem is proposing to dynamically link to all of them.

I agree with everything in the original proposal.  The main reason not
to link dpkg dynamically to libbz2 etc. is robustness - but I haven't
worried about Debian's library handling robustness for a long time.
