Most activity about stali seems to be such as this.

Yes, no wonder. GNU Autotools is a system to cause build failures and
other grief, portably.

I have for quite a while been trying to build a static-linked
Arch-based system with, as its core, linux, pacman, sbase, and some
tools from OpenBSD. It is highly experimental, not ready for general
use, with no warranty, quite possibly likely to kill or maim, etc,
etc. Not sure whether it will meet your criteria, but nevertheless it
can be found here:
Built packages, x86_64:
Build scripts, i.s. PKGBUILDS:

Packages built against uClibc.
Short-term goals are these:
* make pacman and the associated tools and scripts, mainly makepkg,
work with said core
* diversify architecturally, e.g. i686, Loongson
