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.

+      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.
