There are 3 linking modes of syslog-ng:

 * dynamic: are libraries are linked in dynamically, requires dynamic
libraries on all hosts (--enable-dynamic-linking))
 * static: all libraries are linked in statically, requires static
versions of all libs on the build host (--enable-static-linking)
 * mixed (used to be default for 2.0): most 3rd party libraries are
linked in statically, but the system libraries are linked dynamically.
(when both of the above are disabled)

I agree that the configure options may not be the most intuitive to use.

I've just pushed a patch that adds an explicit --enable-mixed-linking
option to make it easier to use.
