I think there is a way, but not trivial. I had to do all kind of tricks 
to use fftw in mex (matlab extension written in C, practically 
dynamically loaded .so inside matlab), and linking statically some 
libraries was one of them. If you still need it (linking some libraries 
statically, other dynamically, to build a .so), I can try to dig in my 
matlab scripts (unused for some time thanks to scipy :) )
