Unfortunately, I don't believe you will be able to easily build a
statically linked version of Octave.  I just tried with the development
code and it bombs out pretty badly.  The generated Makefile in the src
directory, for example, can't even be read by Make because a line
continuation character is missing.  Furthermore, if you look at Makefile.am
in the src directory you will find this comment:
  ## FIXME -- this list is probably not complete now.  It may not even
  ## be possible to build a statically linked copy of Octave that is
  ## fully functional.

I would suggest looking for a different solution to whatever issue you face
because this will not be resolved quickly, if it is even fixed at all.
