How can I build Asterisk src static

I’ve seen that it should be possible to build Asterisk static, so that there is no need for having the necessary libraries installed.
Is there anybody who has done a static build and can give me some instructions?
At this point the only thing I saw, that it is possible to select " static_build " in the menu (make menuselect). But when I do the compiling and installing stuff Asterisk does not start because some options are missing…
Because of this it seems that something is missing, but I do not know what!
