You can just use pkg-config --static all the time, unless
 ( disable_static && ( host_os == Linux || host_os == Solaris ) )

Works wonders! :-)

Once Libtool has been fixed to allow specifying separate dependencies
for static and shared libs (it might have a special API for pkg-config
at that point), this can be revisited.

This is a question you might need to ask on the pkg-config list.
