You shouldn't have to compile strace statically. But if you want,
compile it like "make LDFLAGS=-static" and it'll be linked statically.

But I don't think strace will be of any help in this particular case.
What might be more helpful is run the gcc command that fails and add
--verbose to the command line. GCC will give you more info where it is
looking for header files and such which might give you a clue.
