I tried on one of my projects, and the only static libraries are those
compiled inside the project.
It seems that those flags are intended for libraries production. To have
static linking of the libraries in the executable, you must probably
list the libraires in the LDFLAGS, i.e. /usr/lib/libglib.a instead of
-lglib, which will need some editing in
