Statically link Plan 9 from User Space

In *nix-like systems dynamic linking creates a huge penalty for fork calls, so statically linking p9p will improve werc’s performance considerably.

For this all you need to do is edit your $PLAN9/bin/9l as follows:

   diff -r 47b3d93f532d bin/9l
   @@ -264,7 +264,7 @@
          extralibs="$extralibs -lutil"
   -       ld=gcc
   +       ld="gcc -static"
          extralibs="$extralibs -lutil"
          case "${SYSVERSION:-`uname -r`}" in

And then run the p9p INSTALL script again.
