Looks like it's trying to compile shared libraries (the "dynamic"
probably refers to "dynamically linked" -- shared libraries are
said to be dynamically linked, as opposed to statically linked).

DSLinux does not support shared libraries, it only supports static

You could could try finding an option in the configure script
that disables shared library linking, or look around
(or, if it exists) for ways to disable dynamic linking.

Hope this helps,
