 When configure qemu with --static, it might autodetect support for some
 features by looking at available shared libraries instead of static
 libraries.  e.g. if you have, bluez support will be
 turned on, but the build will fail at link stage.

 Setting LDFLAGS earlier to include -static will cause the
 compile_prog() tests to try to link against static libs.  This did
 disable bluetooth support properly on my system where libbluetooth.a
 isn't available.  Tested by building qemu configured with:
    ./configure --static --target-list=arm-softmmu,i386-softmmu,x86_64-softmmu,arm-linux-user,i386-linux-user,x86_64-linux-user
 and again without --static.

Subject: [PATCH] Add -static earlier to LDFLAGS for compile_prog()

Add -static to LDFLAGS earlier as to run the compile_prog() tests with
this flags, this will avoid turning on features for which a shared
library is available but not a static one.
