When building bash statically, configure does not initialize the
SHOBJ_STATUS variable. The SHOBJ_STATUS make variable in
examples/loadables/Makefile.in must resolve to either 'supported' or
'unsupported'. Otherwise, the install-$(SHOBJ_STATUS) target does not

This leads to the following build failure:

make[2]: Entering directory '.../output/build/bash-4.4/examples/loadables'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'install-', needed by 'install'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory '.../output/build/bash-4.4/examples/loadables'
Makefile:793: recipe for target 'install' failed

with the following defconfig:


Note that this doesn't terminate the build so it's not detected as an
error by the autobuilders.
