Is it a statically compiled language?

Is this going to be a statically compiled language like Go, or will the binaries depend on external libraries?

There's a libc dependency, so not quite like Go.

Actually I just found out that as of Go 1.12, binaries are dynamically linked to libc on macOS, Solaris, and Windows.

Also, if you do networking, libc is used on Linux as well.

Using libc is preferable to unstable and undocumented raw syscalls.

Everything other than libc is linked statically, so I would say the answer to your question is yes.

Wow! Didn't know that...
