Statically Linked Envoy Binary?

Hello,

I am wondering what the best way to get a statically linked envoy binary? I am trying to familiarize myself with the project and come up to speed, but getting a statically linked envoy binary (or learning how to compile this from source correctly) is blocking me atm.

If someone could assist me in getting this compiled statically I would greatly appreciate it. I was previously using the Docker images to build via “make build”, but I have since learned that for “envoy” it just downloads a pre-built binary (e.g. https://storage.googleapis.com/istio-build/proxyhttps://storage.googleapis.com/istio-build/proxy/envoy-alpha-344447e2186d8900714cbd9023b0a8f716271779.tar.gz). Is there a pre-built statistically compiled version available?

Thanks,
Ryan
