Hmmm.  I see TARGET_LDFLAGS only as --static on my system.  I do know that I
desire this flag to be sent down to the build, which, as it stands right now,
it doesn't (since the TARGET_LDFLAGS is not getting passed to LDFLAGS as a part
of configure).

So, what about something like this:

OPENSSH_LDFLAGS_FOR_CONF = $(TARGET_CFLAGS)

ifeq ($(BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB),y)
OPENSSH_LDFLAGS_FOR_CONF += --static
endif

OPENSSH_CONFIGURE_ENV += LDFLAGS="$(OPENSSH_LDFLAGS_FOR_CONF)"

???

Assuming that what I wrote down below [I modified this section after
typing the below -- you cannot read my e-mails straight through as I'm
a bit scatter-brained] does holds true for several rebuilds.

Right, but the top-level is .NOTPARALLEL:, so it would stand that this would
not be possible to ever make happen.  Given that openssh has a HARD dependency
on openssl.

I dunno.  I'm still working on it.  I did just try to pass in TARGET_LDFLAGS
to LDFLAGS as part of the CONFIGURE_ENV and that seemed to have worked.

I'll have to run it again a few times before I'm comfortable with that.

I'm perplexed.
