Aaah, you got it! Indeed the autobuilder randomly sets
BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB, and this isn't going to work properly when the
external toolchain is glibc based, since I've excluded glibc/eglibc
toolchains from the static build thing.

I guess I need to improve the autobuild script to only use
BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB when !glibc && !eglibc (i.e at the moment, when
uClibc is used).

Thanks for spotting this!
