I finally found out what --with-pic is for. From autobook documentation:

In normal operation, Libtool will build shared libraries from PIC objects and 
static archives from non-PIC objects, except where one or the other is not 
provided by the target host. By specifying `--with-pic' you are asking 
libtool to build static archives from PIC objects, and similarly by 
specifying `--without-pic' you are asking libtool to build shared libraries 
from non-PIC objects. 
libtool will only honour this flag where it will produce a working library, 
otherwise it reverts to the default.
