Setting autotools for static compilation

ATT: Cross-sent to automake and autoconf MLs since problem spans both
worlds, I think!

Hi all,

I'm currently using autoconf for the for my libraries with
AC_CHECK_LIB, and to generate static binaries I do everytime I
./configure LDFLAGS="-static"

However, in google groups:
Paul Pluzhnikov told that it was not the best way to do this. Instead
of using -static I should do:
-Wl,-Bstatic -llog4cpp -lglpk -Wl,-Bdynamic
(because I was using log4cpp and glpk at the time)

So in general I should do:
-Wl,-Bstatic <LIBS> -Wl,-Bdynamic

My question is, Is there a way to configure this efficiently in
autotools, so that whenever I add a check for a LIB it is also added
to that line for static linking?

Thanks in advance,
