Did it load images? The gdk-pixbuf loaders are dlopened. Was Pango
statically linked? That dlopens the modules the scripts. Obviously the
application used the default theme, as theme engines are dlopened.
If the static libraries handle these cases then excellent, but otherwise
a non-trivial static GTK+ application isn't usable.
