Proposed, slightly ugly patch.  Can you try it please, and do you have a
name and email address to put in the ChangeLog and THANKS?

Thus, OK to apply?  Note that our manual explicitly allows to use
-static even with --disable-static (which I am not sure whether it works
everywhere, but the static.at test should expose that when libtool is
configured that way), so the situation isn't quite clear-cut.


2008-03-24  Ralf Wildenhues  <address@hidden>

        Document that disable-static plus -all-static is not portable.
        * doc/libtool.texi (Link mode): -all-static does not go well
        with disable-static on most systems.
        * tests/static.at (static linking flags for programs) [!aix]:
        With --disable-static but nonempty link_static_flag, skip the
        m-all-static link.  Do not skip it on AIX, as there the
        enable_static is self-inflicted, and thus expected to work.
        * THANKS: Update.
        Report by Nix.
