The main problem is, I tell the system to link everything dynamically 
(-DNOSTATIC), but my system doesn't do it. The binaries are still linked

I think compression and dynamic linking (when I get it to work) will suffice.
Thanks for your help.
It's almost done, just a few minor changes and we're ready to go.
