If you have a directory named static and used that as argument for -B,
you deserve trouble.  Also, isn't -B to be fed an absolute path?

Sure.  But in general, libtool may invoke either the compiler driver or
the linker directly.  It doesn't do that for GCC any more, I think, but
it used to.

You can work around it using
  -Xcompiler -B/some/path
for now.
