There was some reasons. Afair, MySQL is not the only software which could not
be statically linked with OpenSSL. Licensing issues or technical - I don't 
remember.

On Linux, yes - because of the glibc.

No, thread stack size is still too big in latest 2.2.x glibc branch. :( 
It's not clear what's about thread stack size in glibc 2.3.x.

You can compile and replace the system glibc by yourself. I did so and it's
safe in terms of thread stack size. But it's not the easiest task and you
should be very careful doing this, because it's a main library in the OS. Also
you have to take your Linux's vendor glibc source package and apply all his
patches to your customized glibc to ensure that replacing will not break
something else.
