legacy: update the BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB option
Since the refactoring of the type of libraries in the target filesystem, these options belong to a choice, and the default is "shared only". The former option BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB has been moved in the legacy menu, and only selects the BR2_STATIC_LIBS ("static only") option. However, because BR2_STATIC_LIBS belongs to a choice, when BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB is selected, it does not affect the choice. So, existing Buildroot configurations, which have BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB set, will silently end with BR2_SHARED_LIBS ("shared only") enabled. So, the backward compatibility is not kept. Besides, the legacy BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB option does not select BR2_LEGACY, so the user is not notified of this legacy option, and the build silently continues with some undesired changes. This patch removes the inefficient BR2_STATIC_LIBS selection, correctly selects the BR2_LEGACY option and extend the help message so the user can easily know how to update his/her Buildroot configuration.

help
The BR2_PREFER_STATIC_LIB was renamed to BR2_STATIC_LIBS. It
highlights the fact that the option no longer "prefers"
static libraries, but "enforces" static libraries (i.e
shared libraries are completely unused).
+ Take care of updating the type of libraries you want under the
+ "Build options" menu.
