-Bstatic would be valid for the compiler driver regardless ... if you had a 
directory in $PWD named "static" ...

unless you mean invoking `ld` directly ?  -B to the compiler driver and -B to 
the linker have very diff meanings ...

i'm trying to use:
LDFLAGS = -B/some/path
in the build environment and things break when libtool is involved and it 
tries to link a shared library because it strips this -B flag ...
