No. Without -static -lldap and -llber, being libtool libraries,
would be dynamically linked in.

-static do not do any dynamic linking of libtool libraries
-all-static do not do any dynamic linking at all
We use -static, not -all-static.

I just check RE20, RE21 and HEAD and see that, as intended,
-lldap and -llber are statically linked in while -lc and other
system libraries (excepting libtool libraries*) are dynamically
* If you have libtool libraries installed, then those get
statically linked in as well. That's likely what you are
seeing below with -lsasl. That, IMO, is an unfortunate
We could remove this side-effect relatively easily by hack
libtool a bit (or by other means).

Incorrect. Remove the -static, re-make, and then use ldd(1)
to see the linking.
