AND.  If it weren't statically linked, the shared object files would
need to be distributed.

I read this when the license was first changed:

"Silverex explains about the differences between the XChat windows
build, and his: 'zed compiles gtk+ libraries into xchat.exe executable
itself, mine uses gtk+ runtime environment, which many gtk+ for
windows applications can share. thus, one can change gtk themes on my
build. there are also several other minor differences. zed can and is
able to hack gtk+ so it would look better, I'm stuck with official gtk
sources, which lack some features.'

"Zed asked Silverex to move his website from the domain, and
the domain is now disabled."

That would imply that it is statically compiled.  I can't say whether
or not object files are included.
