Found mention of it in this discussion:

"I disagree that --enable-shared should be the default. It is
difficult to maintain, as finding shared libraries is always
a PITA (in particular on Solaris). Its only real use is for
embedding, in even in the case of embedding, it is possible
to avoid using shared libraries."
