I missed this question the first time around. Sorry.
I don't have a canned answer to your question, but on the wxHaskell team we
have recently been working on (ab)using Cabal to produce shared libraries,
and almost everything is just as applicable to static libraries. It's not
all working yet, but some of the following pointers might help you to
understand how to make Cabal linking configurable.
