Well, yes, --tag=disable-static helps only at link time.

Put it in AM_LIBTOOLFLAGS -- works per-directory, or
modulename_LIBTOOLFLAGS -- works per module.

If you want both built, but only shared installed, one way is to build
them twice, say, in different directories, once with and once without
--tag=disable-shared.  For the ones that you don't want installed,
you'll need to make them noinst_LTLIBRARIES, and add -rpath $libdir
manually to *LDFLAGS, additionally to -module.

Hope that helps.
