This option is only there because it's part of the autotools boilerplate. It has been disabled 
by the lttng-ust project on purpose. 

See README.md: 

"LTTng-UST needs to be a shared library, _even if_ the tracepoint probe provider is statically 
linked into the application." 

Static linking of liblttng-ust has never been a supported use-case, and would require a significant 
design/implementation effort. 

Thanks, 

Mathieu
