Hi Craig,

I actually recently started working on this, however I am did not quite
look at what you want.

There already is a branch called topic/johanna/static, which now makes
--build-static(-only) work for broker whan CAF is built statically - it
does not yet pass the static flags through to broker; I actually wanted to
take a look at that today.

I will let you know when I make progress there :)
