The business of having to include every single dependancy when linking
static is quite irritating. It has almost reached the point where
people are just giving up static linking because it's too much of a

However, if we do want to support it, the way you do it is by extending
pg_config to do something like:

pg_config --dynamic-lick   => returns -lpq
pg_config --static-link    => returns -lpq <plus other libs>

That way only people who actually want static linking need be bothered.
