You must do the former. If you pass the same variable multiple times the
last definition overrides the earlier ones.

That said, I wouldn't expect -static-libstdc++ to help, unless you're
building theora as part of a C++ application. The codec library is
entirely in C, no C++.

I can't find documenation for a -static-libc option in the GCC or GNU ld
manuals, although it is mentioned in a stack overflow post. Maybe it
doesn't work because your compiler doesn't support it? Have you tried
just 'LDFLAGS=-static' ?
