If luatex (or whatever) is changed to depend on .so files, it will not
be installable in compiled form. Instead it will be necesary to
install the source codes, each users will have to have autodonf,
automake, compiler, development headers and tlmgr will have to compile
them. You can rely on dynamic linkig only if you compile for a
particular distro.
