I am almost certain that in those cases the system libraries in question are not available as shared libs. I don't see -all-static doing anything at all on platforms where lt_prog_compiler_static is not set. I am saying that even without this flag libtool can and should look for static libraries in favor of shared ones if -static is on the command line.
