Static /bin/sh: real 385m29.977s user 111m58.508s sys 93m14.450s
Dynamic /bin/sh: real 455m44.852s user 113m17.807s sys 103m16.509s
Given that user+sys << real in both cases, it looks like you're running out of memory; it's not surprising that dynamic linking has an increased cost in such circumstances, since reading the diverse files into memory will take longer than reading a single static binary.
I doubt many systems will experience this sort of performance delta.
