Well, as the others didn't get the point of your question 8-) :

./configure says:

something like

configuring static support yes
configuring shared support yes

It only says, it's configuring, it's not meant to compile both.

So, if there are no real differences between shared and static support it
just says it supports both of them.

Clever, isn't it?

It's not going to compile static *and* shared.

Compiling static or shared is ordered on make.
