ldd lists only the dynamic libraries, is there a way to extract the information about the static libraries used to create the executable?
ldd <exe filename> shows dynamically linked libraries
nm <exe filename> shows the symbols in the file.
To see which symbols come from static libraries requires running
nm against those libraries to get a list of the symbols (functions, etc.) in them, then comparing them to what your list of symbols from
nm <exe filename>.
You compare lists with the
comm command. See
man comm for details.

No, the names of the libraries are discarded during the linking process. However, if your executable contains debug information (i.e. it was compiled with the -g flag), you may be able to get information from that.
