I guess the biggest advantage of dynamic loading is that it can use the
environment variable for finding the library, this approach is documented
/ encouraged in the NDI SDK.
Also the author of the ndi patches prefers this approach, that matters as
I am not sure I see a lot of difference when it comes to GPL
circumvention, if the lib is in non-free, then the stuff becomes
non-redistributable, period. Added complexity is marginal IMHO.
