I don't know if will work in your case, but I managed to work around
automake's policing of one of its variables in a similar situation by
hiding the value in a variable set by the configure script, e.g. do

my_libadd=-Wl,--whole-archive ../Shared/HwMgmt/.libs/libhwmgmt.a
../Shared/Misc/.libs/libmisc.a .libs/libsata.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive
-lz -lrt
