[m-dev.] proposal: make shared libs the default on Linux/x86

Currently, shared libraries are not the default for Mercury on
Linux/x86 systems.  I propose that we do make them the default
on that platform.  It more consistent with the other platforms
(at least those that support shared libraries) and since we
no longer reserve %ebx as a global register in non-PIC Mercury code
there are no longer any major performance reasons for using static
linkage by default.
