The issue is with libtool. In the form in which it is generated by
configure, it doesn't support building static or dynamic as a command
line option. You're stuck with whatever choice you made at configure

The solution is to add another configure as a subpackage just for the
plug-in and tell that one to generate dynamic libraries all the time:
