Thanks, I've already solved the problem, but it's still a valid complain that
"--enable-static-exe" switch of unbound configuration script does not work
even if you check it out that it's documented as:

 --enable-static-exe     enable to compile executables statically against
                          event, ldns libs,  ......

Or maybe I misunderstand the description here, that this option only
"enables" to do so, but not forcing it?
