I'm afraid you have to be more specific.  Are you speaking about g++ and
its libstdc++ only?  Is this on GNU/Linux only (why on earth would you
want to do that there?), or maybe AIX and libstdc++.a isn't static as
you may think?  Are you using libtool?  (You are not trying to link
libstdc++.a into a shared library, are you?)

I think in general using a static libstdc++ (as shipped with GCC) is
rarely a good idea.  IIRC there are or were some things that definitely 
did not work (but I may be wrong on this); and also there is definitely
a huge size overhead to the resulting binary.

One way to force it with g++ is to
 ./configure LDFLAGS=-static

but that may be just a bit too broad for your...
