The problem here, is that there is still dynamic linker overhead both as the application is started up, and as it runs. While the "statically" linked binaries obviously benefit from having to take fewer detours through the PLT, these apps are still dynamically linked to libc, libthread, and probably others. So, the full benefit of statically linking them is lost. The 64-bit dynamically linked apps take longer than their 32-bit counterparts for reasons which include more instructions in the PLT to generate the function address to which to jump.
True, but Solaris has never shipped 64-bit static libraries for libc or libthread. And in Solaris Next, it will not have any 32-bit static libraries. So the comparisons he did are really the only reasonable ones to do.
