First, this isn't portable, even for different versions of GCC...

Second, many platforms don't even need this type of option - it is
automatically used unless you provide "-static" (or a similar option)
to statically link the application.

Soo, I'd make this something that configure adds to LDFLAGS based on
the OS and compiler.

(no, I don't think this is reason enough to use libtool!)
