No, you can just bundle them. And dynamic linking allows you to update the library after release, which is important, especially on moving platforms like Linux.

If people understand that everyone working together makes accomplishing goals easier, we don't need capitalism. Except they don't. People always try to gain more power/convenience or less things to do. If you can stop working and still receive all the benefits, why work? That's why communism failed, and that's why BSD-licensed software is used in proprietary software.
