Depending on a static library

I would like to have a port depending on a static library (using a shared
one is not an option here) but it seems that the LIB_DEPENDS statement
in the Makefile only support shared ones.  I google'd for a while but I
did'nt find something relevant.

I'm truly convinced this is possible, but the Porter's handbook does not
say anything about it.  The only way I found is using the DEPENDS statement,
but if I understood correctly while reading, this is not a
conditional inclusion, it simply make a target in the specified directory.
Is there any clean way to achieve this ?
