馃憢 Hi this is a pull request to go with the discussion #6785

The current linux build is dynamically linked, so it requires libraries to be present on the system when running. This means it does not work on minimal Alpine containers (#6690) unless the user knows to install two library packages. It also appears to not be compatible with NixOS (#6785 (comment))

Packaging the linux binary statically will fix these issues and make it platform independent. It also will not take up any more space, based on my test builds below.
