  `-Bdynamic'?  Those were the most common names I could find, but IMHO
  they are not very self-explanatory for users not used to them.

-prefer-static, -prefer-dynamic/-prefer-shared? The -Bxxx doesn't seem
similar with current libtool options.

At least for the static case, I would prefer the link to entirely fail if a static library is requested but one can not be found. Usually there is a very important reason to use a static library if it has specifically been requested. So the wording should not be 'prefer' for the static case. I agree that the -B syntax does not fit the style of other libtool options (but does match many linkers).
