Ian Taylor has explained that the messages about libc are spurious, so
you can either ignore those or install some kind of a Valgrind exception.

However, I really implore you: by all means link statically to everything
else, but leave libc dynamically linked.  I'm not aware of any reason not
to link libc dynamically, and not doing so leads to a ton of problems.
