[Lzip-bug] lzlib: please support disabling static libraries

The modern systems don't have much use for static libraries, especially
when it comes to non-core system libraries such as liblz. In fact, all
our programs link to shared liblz.

At the moment, the build system does not provide any sane way of
disabling static library build & install. As a result, we're building
the library unnecessarily just to remove it afterwards.

Could you consider adding a '--disable-static' option complementary to
'--enable-shared'? Alternatively, you may consider using a more
complete build system that would enable building lzlib for non-.so

Best regards,
Michał Górny
