config: add option to build statically linked toolchain
Add a config option to statically build the host tools. Impacted tools can use that option to decide wether to build statically or shared. For now, no tool uses it, but they'll be added one at a time in the next commits. Signed-off-by: "Bryan Hundven" <> Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>

+ Build static host binaries.
+ If you wish to move the toolchain to another host, and you are not
+ confident that this host has the required versions of system libs, then
+ you can say 'Y' here, and all the host tools will be linked staticaly.
+ The default is 'N', to build dynamicaly-linked host binaries.
+ NOTE: this has no connection to whether the target libraries will be
+ dynamic or static. This only applies to the tools themselves.
