per-deplib static/dynamic patches

I saw per-deplib static/dynamic patches implemented in 2006 by Ralf
Wildenhues, but I can't see them in current libtool.

I'd need exactly this feature for syslog-ng as it needs to be started
before /usr is mounted and all libraries that it depends on in usr must
be linked statically, but other system libs should be linked

Going for an all static binary is not really an option as syslog-ng is
now plugin based and plugins need to link against the main program and
if I link a static lib into the syslog-ng binary plugins may not find
all symbols (as those can potentially be stripped since the main program
isn't using them).

Can I ask if there's an updated patch available or if there are any
plans to actually integrate them into libtool mainline?

BTW: the problem is not new for syslog-ng, it has been linked this way
for years, however because of the plugin conversion it now started using
libtool which it didn't until now.

Thanks for any help or hints you can give.
