Nit, wrap closer to 75 chars.

In case there's any hesitation in applying this (Paolo asked if this was just for
debugging in v1), being able to pass "-static" is helpful for our environment as
our test systems have a funky and minimal configuration (no gcc, and the interpreter
is in a weird location).  Running selftests either requires building them with
-static or creating a symbolic link for /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2.  It's generally
easier to just tell people to compile with -static.
