According to Samuel in the Debian bug report, "when both static &
dynamic linking is enabled, automake gets it wrong and uses only the
dynamic objects."

Is the best course of action here to do a two-pass build, one with
"--enable-shared=no --enable-static=yes" and another with
"--enable-shared=yes --enable-static=no", simply copying the desired
libasound.a from the second pass?
