Error is because is request static linking for application but objects
are build for dynamic linking.

Configure script for mingw* host forces static linking of application
(It seems to me by mistake enable_static_linking is set to yes when
shared lib hack is removed).

Lets set following snippet in script:
AC_ARG_ENABLE(static_linking,   [  --enable-static-linking enable static
linking (no)])
if test "z$enable_static_linking" = "zyes" ; then

Linker flag -static requires some compilation magic : to set in
XMLSEC_APP_DEFINES preprocessor flags for static builds as is written in
documentation for instance
https://www.aleksey.com/xmlsec/api/xmlsec-notes-compiling-windows.html .

So correction should be like this

Also created static libraries has to be checked for "zero import symbols".
