I finally managed to build a static version of tiff2pdf.
I ran first:
./configure --prefix=/home/joelco/prog/tiff2pdf/ --enable-shared=no LIBS='/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a' --enable-static
But it was not enough to have a static version, the static option was not present in the final libtool command:
/bin/bash ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc -static -g -O2 -Wall -W -static -o tiff2pdf tiff2pdf.o ../libtiff/libtiff.la ../port/libport.la -ljpeg -lm /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a
libtool: link: gcc -g -O2 -Wall -W -o tiff2pdf tiff2pdf.o ../libtiff/.libs/libtiff.a ../port/.libs/libport.a -ljpeg -lm /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a
So I just ran the link command manually adding the static option:
gcc -g -O2 -Wall -W -static -o tiff2pdf tiff2pdf.o ../libtiff/.libs/libtiff.a ../port/.libs/libport.a -ljpeg -lm /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a
It's not the cleanest way of building a static binary but at least it worked.

You don't really want to build a static libtiff. Modern systems
depend on shared libraries so that binaries can run on multiple
systems. The only library which looks like a problem in your linkage
(adapted for your system) might help with the JPEG linkage problem.
Otherwise you will need to learn about exotic linker options.
