I'm usually using the attached patch to build all programs statically.
The default with this patch is still to build dynamic programs.

A number of feasable use cases come to mind, which this configure options
helps with:
1) easy debugging
2) no dependencies
3) may be faster to start (no dlopening)

Tobi, please apply if you think it's useful.
