okay, here are sample build instructions which work for me (TM):

mkdir clisp; cd clisp
mkdir $clisp_toolsdir

cd $clisp_basedir
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libsigsegv/libsigsegv-2.5.tar.gz
gzip -dc libsigsegv-2.5.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd libsigsegv-2.5
./configure --prefix=$clisp_toolsdir && make && make check && make install

cd $clisp_basedir
wget http://www.haible.de/bruno/gnu/ffcall-1.10.tar.gz
gzip -dc ffcall-1.10.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd ffcall-1.10
./configure --prefix=$clisp_toolsdir && make && make check && make install

cd $clisp_basedir
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/clisp/release/2.44.1/clisp-2.44.1.tar.gz
gzip -dc clisp-2.44.1.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd clisp-2.44.1
export LDFLAGS="-L$clisp_toolsdir/lib"
export CPPFLAGS="-I$clisp_toolsdir/include"
./configure $clisp_builddir --with-ffcall --with-libsigsegv-prefix=$clisp_toolsdir --with-libffcall-prefix=$clisp_toolsdir
cd $clisp_builddir

Please try it. It builds static libsigsegv and libffcall, and links
clisp against them.

The reason to build even libsigsegv is to ensure that clisp will not
find and link to an OS-supplies libsigsegv.

The resulting clisp binary doesn't have unwanted shared library

$ ldd ./lisp.run 
	linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fffe49fe000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00002b2cc634b000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00002b2cc654f000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00002b2cc612e000)
$ ldd ./clisp
	linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fff8d7fe000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00002b111d559000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00002b111d75d000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00002b111d33c000)

The trick is to export CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS before configuing clisp, -
that's probably why it did not work for you. It looks like a bug in
clisp's configure scripts, that it doesn't do that automatically when
passed with --with-libsigsegv-prefix and --with-libffcall-prefix

Running "make install" for clisp is *not necessary*.

The next step is to build xindy, by passing a configure option


(either to xindy's configure if you're building just xindy, or to the
Build script if you're building the whole TeX Live).

once xindy is built here, i get these shared libs on lisp.run:

$ ldd ./lisp.run 
	linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007ffff9ffe000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x00002b1db0e55000)
	libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0x00002b1db10d8000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00002b1db1310000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00002b1db1515000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00002b1db0c38000)
