Yes, doing that with a static library was the final solution.

Meanwhile, I tried many ways to somehow get it working using a shared
library, maybe because with shared lib things were much clean and compact.
But the issue was darwintrace code would intercept sys calls in our shared
library as well which would make things even more complicated and slower.
