If you don't like the guidelines, I suggest voicing your concerns on    
the fedora-packaging list.  This guideline is pretty new, and has not been    
applied everywhere yet, but that doesn't mean that it shouldn't be applied to    
new packages (unless there's a good reason not to, and "good devel stuff with   
html docs" isn't one when balanced against the potential security problems   
shipping static libs can inflict on users).  More info in the  
fedora-maintainers list archives:

The standard --with functionality of rpmbuild should work:    
  %configure %{!?_with_static:--disable-static}    
  %if 0%{?_with_static:1}

Works for me, they can be enabled later if need be.  Note that with   
--disable-external, the now useless external converter scripts are still   
installed in libexecdir and should be manually removed in the specfile.
