Aah, I misunderstood you.

What, exactly, are the semantic differences between `-dn' and `-Bstatic'?
Do the semantics differ among Solaris/SunOS versions?
Online manuals are not enlightening.

Prevent dynamic linking, I guess.  What are the exact differences
between your quoted meanings?  (I ask this question to prevent subtle
misunderstandings based on me not being a native speaker, and on English
not being a precise language.)

I think what you mean by "cause a static link" would be using -all-static
in the link line.

Might (as previously noted) not be possible with libtool (yet) -- I'll
put it in TODO if not there yet.
