commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=a6fa695639b06b475565980e0c99f9f261786e81
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

pkg-autotools.mk already handles static/shared linking, so no need to
explictly force it. Worse even, the build fails with BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LINK
as we end up calling libtool with --static when it tries to link the .so,
breaking the build:

../ld: attempted static link of dynamic object
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
