Well, I must say no, even if it could be theorically possible !

Gambas executables are not REAL executables. There are just archives of 
compiled class that are sent to the interpreter. To do that, gambas 
executables files begin with the "shell magic" #!/usr/bin/gbx -x"

Creating a static gambas executable needs a gambas interpreter that do not 
load its components, but has everyone statically compiled. Interpreter 
component management routines need a rewrite to do that. Are you volunteer ?
