[Samba] Making a static build of smbclient

Hello, I'm having troubles with making a static build of smbclient. I've
searched the archives, and it seems like I'm getting close, but I'm not
quite there yet. I've tried:

./configure --nonshared-binary=smbclient
make bin/smbclient

But then when I run `ldd bin/smbclient`, I see a lot of linked libraries
still. And if I copy it to a fresh docker container (to try it in a
completely different environment), it gives an error saying that it
can't find a library.

Some other flags I've tried:


Some more background if it helps:

Samba version: 4.12.6
Python version: 3.8.5
OS: Arch Linux

Thank you very much for your time!

- David
