But that's exactly what needs to be done.  Basically, here's how
I see it.  Configure -s needs to make static the default, but
the rest should be intact, i.e. 'make all' should always build both
targets regardless of default, and 'make gp' should always build
the default target.  I believe this is how it's meant to be, however
the way -s flag is implemented, gp-dyn is never built.
