static linking won't work accross different major glibc versions, as
syslog-ng uses NSS libraries that have different binary interfaces and
can't be linked statically.
you can recompile syslog-ng on an older system that has old glibc.
The only problem you can have is glib and friends as older systems
usually have a too old glib version.
