The problem there is that you need static libnss libraries to be able to link 
them in statically. Distributions don't come with static libnss libraries 
because Glibc doens't create them normally speaking. I haven't seen a 
distribution yet (other than LFS where people themselves have them built) 
that comes with static libnss. So that's going to be a bit of a problem.
