This is a standard autotools build system. You can build out-of-tree.

When linking statically, the order in which you list libraries is
important. You need to go from the most specific to the most
generic. So it should be libodb-sqlite.a libodb.a.

Note also that you can disable building of shared/static libraries
with the --disable-shared/--disable-static configure options.

Finally, for completeness, if you have both shared and static
libraries, then the linker will prefer the shared. To change
this, you can use the -Wl,-Bstatic and -Wl,-Bdynamic options
on the g++ command line, e.g.,

g++ ... -Wl,-Bstatic -lodb-sqlite -lodb -Wl,-Bdynamic ...
