Yes, as long as all required libraries are available as static libs.

You can use ldd binary (e.g. ldd /usr/bin/mplayer) to verify which
dynamic libraries are needed for a binary. Note that one library may
depend on other libraries, the default output of ldd is the aggregate
of all dependencies - ie. what is needed to execute it, rather than
what it was built against.
