has a nice description.

what would need to be done to make this process slimmer and not 
need
e.g. nsswitch.conf and passwd?

in golang the process is included and i can easily create a 
static binary.
is it possible with ldc or dmd to create a similar static binary?

Not all binaries need nsswitch.conf and passwd. As to how to make it simpler, your link itself suggests using dockerize. dmd creates statically linked binaries by default. Usually all you need is the dynamic loader and system runtime libraries for a container. Atila
