using the -Bstatic or just -static you're forcing the linker to use
static libraries instead of shared objects. for example:
"-static -lcrypto" will link with /usr/lib/libcrypto.a
"-lcrypto" will link with /usr/lib/

That's off course the Linux behavior with GNU compiler.
This can be used as many time as you wish in the linker command line
toggling it is by using -dynamic.

Also if you want to avoid recompiling you may use the environment
variable LD_PRELOAD,
which will cause you application to load the static library first.
