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.

Be aware that pure static executables are not necessarily portable to other systems. The C shared library interface is much more dependable than the raw system call interface used between the C library and the kernel.

Statically linking libjpeg should not be a problem. Statically linking libc is not a wise idea.
