I understand that, but why should a user who downloads a libtoolized
package have to read the libtool manual, especially since passing in
gcc's "-static" flag via $LDFLAGS is not an uncommon thing to do.
That behavior is now changed due to libtool's own "-static" flag
conflicting with gcc's "-static" flag.
