I understand that building shared library only is something that is
not portable, because it is not possible.

Sometimes it is due to limitations in the language run-time environment. For example, it has been a common problem that the C++ standard library provided with GCC is static under Windows due a problem with throwing exceptions across DLL boundaries.
