I just tried out this patch to compile notmuch as a shared library and
while producing lib/libnotmuch.so.1 it fails to find notmuch later:

CC      notmuch
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lnotmuch

Aso it creates libnotmuch.so.1 in lib but seems to try symlinking it in
the "compat" dir which fails and produces a dead symlink.

CXX     lib/libnotmuch.so.1
ln -sf compat/libnotmuch.so.1 compat/libnotmuch.so

Is more needed than this patch? Also, *I* think it would be nice to
support --static or --shared as options to --configure. But that is a
minor thing, probably.
