when ./configure is run with --disable-shared, is there a way to invoke the pkg-config macro with --static (so that it does not select private libraries in the .pc file)?
It seems that LT_INIT has been executed, the shell environment variables enable_shared and enable_static are set to 'yes' if shared and/or static libraries will be built. You can test these environment variables to determine the parameter to pass to pkg-config.

But note, that private libraries are likely needed to like against when
creating a static build; its only shared libraries that the runtime
linker can resolve missing dependencies transitively for you, [and that
only on some platforms like glibc linux].

yes sorry, I meant "so that it does select private libraries"
