No. Strangely enough, we need to test both shared and static as long as 
both are built, as sometimes the static and shared have different link 
properties. This has been an issue historically, where static binaries 
link but shared don't (say, on alpha right now, for instance) -- so we 
need this info in the "make check" rule.
