I suspect you have, but I'm only guessing based on poking around a little in
the source.  In cobc.c in the long_options struct I found:

    {"static",      CB_NO_ARG, &cb_flag_static_call, 1},
    {"dynamic",     CB_NO_ARG, &cb_flag_static_call, 0},

Which looks like -static, though for a long option --static would look more
natural, enabled static calls and -dynamic enables dynamic calls.

It would appear so.  It was the 2.0 source I got the above info from.

The text output by cobc --help would be another helpful place to have it
documented.  It doesn't currently display info about the -static and/or
-dynamic options.
