WinPcap is not just some DLLs. It includes (among other things) a kernel 
driver that cannot be transformed to a static library.

So even if you transform the user level DLLs to static libraries, you will 
always need to install the kernel capture driver.

If you are interested in a way to incorporate WinPcap within your 
application without the hassle of an installer, you can have a look at 
WinPcap Pro (formerly known as OEM WinPcap), 

Have a nice day
