By default, a dynamic version of bpftrace is built. However, as we do
not provide a, it falls back on libbpf.a.

There's a comment in FindLibBfd.cmake which says:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# libbfd.a is not statically linked with libiberty.a or libz.a so we must 
# do it. Furthermore, libbfd uses some libc symbols that we must manually
# link against if we're not using static libc (which includes such symbols).
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So when STATIC_LINKING is ON, they add "libz" to the required
libraries. It would be preferable to avoid building a static bpftrace,
so I tried to provide a dynamic version of libbpf.

There's still a failure at validate-runpath phase that need to be
fixed, not sure why.
