Right, that's what -static does. If you remove
(e.g. 'rm /usr/lib/' or just temporarily 'mv' it) then the linker
will look for libssh.a and try to link against that. You could try setting
LDFLAGS=-l/usr/lib/libssh.a during the configure stage, but I don't think
that is going to be enough to fool the linker.
