knock depends on libpcap, that has an optional dependency on libusb.
Alas, libpcap does not install a .pc file, so knock does not know
that it should link with -lusb-1.0.

When linking dynamically, this is not an issue, since the linker does
follow the DT_NEEDED tags of libpcap, and thus pulls libusb-1.0 in at
the same time. And since linusb uses threads, libpthread is pulled in
as well.

However, when linking statically, all of this fails.

Fix that by telling knock's ./configure what libraries to link with
when doing a static build and libusb is enabled.
