Do you guys have any pointers or suggestions as to where to make these changes, or a better way of handling this issue?

doh, so some kde programmers have tricked libtool. To make sharedlibrary
creation being platform independent is tricky in itself, and module
support has made for a lot of dark corners on the way to it.

The only hint that I can give has the form of a question: Did you try
 kbackgammon_LDADD = -static $(LIB_KDEGAMES) $(LIB_KSYCOCA)
 kbackgammon_SOURCES = dummy.cpp

$ ./libtool --help --mode=link | grep static
  -all-static       do not do any dynamic linking at all
  -static           do not do any dynamic linking of libtool libraries
