Well, my understanding is that  --disable-shared is meant to disable
building the shared library build :)

Yeah, that's the common usage. It is also interesting if someone
wants to build 2 versions of the same utility, each using a
different library, for testing purposes.

The usecase I can't see is to use --disable-shared but keeping
using the dynamic library for the exec files.

Well, the point is: if dynamic library build is disabled, it should
be doing static links that are produced by the build, instead of using
an already existing set of dynamic libraries present on the system
(that may not contain the symbols needed by the tool, or miss some
patches that were on -git).
