I'm unsure I understand what you're actually suggesting: that the
documented use should not be implemented?  It seems to me that
implementing it actually allows the installer to change the default
behavior, while having a static AC_DISABLE_STATIC prevents any form of
late decision.  (But that might be what you were pointing out :)

I am agreeing with you that there is a real problem!!!
