commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=574f2f2bb8ac84930761b3a78e6e835134e731a0
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

mysql wants to statically link some of the programs it uses internally,
like conf_to_src (whatever it is used for) which links against -lz.

This does not work for a shared-only build, as we would be missing
libz.a in that case.

Fix that by not forcing static builds for internal programs.

Fixes a slew of autobuild failures:
