Let's say you compile everything fine, but on the deployment
platform, some IT guy has the cool idea of changing some
That change will have as side effect that some third party
dependencies will now be matched to another version different
than what was used by the package manager.
You'll spend a few hours trying to track down the issue, in case
you forget about checking the dynamic resolution order.
This is why Plan 9, Singularity and the Go guys are so much
against dynamic linking.
