You should be able to do:

        ./configure --enable-static --disable-shared ...

This will do 2 things:

- libmpi (and friends) will be compiled as .a's (instead of .so's)
- all the MCA components will be physically contained in libmpi (and
friends) instead of being built as standalone plugins

It's actually --enable-mca-static, not --enable-mcs-static.

However, that should not be necessary; the --enable-static and --
disable-shared should take care of pulling all the components into
the libraries for you.
