I tried building a dynamically linked Nmap RPM and it works (built on
CentOS and run on Fedora). What's the reason that it's being linked

The theory was that it'd be more portable :).  Also, we can't
dynamically link things like OpenSSL or all hell will break loose if
the target system doesn't have that.  But maybe dynamically linking to
system libraries and static to everything else would be ideal?

Hmm, that might work. I resorted to something similar in linking Nping
for the Mac packages. I added a separate OPENSSL_LIBS variable to
nping/Makefile, so that I could override it with "<...>/libssl.a
<...>/libcrypto.a <...>/libz.a".
