Could you please elaborate a little how to do that ? I have read the man 
page but don't see how this relates to what I'm trying to do.

To clarify: In my case I have both, .a as well as .so files installed. 
I'm looking for a way to construct link command lines with appropriate 
"-Wl,-Bstatic ... -Wl,-Bdynamic" sections to force static linking. 
Library dependencies are not an issue at all.
