The general way would be to toggle the "--disable-shared --enable-static" 
configure options, but you'd need to watch out for patches that are specific to 
static linking (e.g. atk-1-DllMain.patch, pthreads-1-fixes.patch) and different 
configuration systems (any of the cmake packages, qt, zlib).

mxe-octave has an interesting approach to create a shared lib from a static 
one[1] and also a shared qt[2], though I haven't tried using it.
