[Xorg] shared vs static libraries

It looks like some of the new libraries are built static only. In the 
past (in XFree86) this has been often seen as a problem by 3rd party 
developpers who want to build application in terms of loadable (with 
dlopen) modules and need functions in these libraries. This is among 
others the case of KDE.

This would affect libdmx, libXprintAppUtil, libXprintutil.
