Due to the error.c code, apparently imported from gnulib, GNU Time cannot be statically linked, as you get redefined symbols for error() and error_at_line():

/home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/host/usr/bin/arm-linux-gcc -static -o time time.o getopt.o getopt1.o error.o resuse.o version.o 
/home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/host/usr/arm-buildroot-linux-uclibcgnueabi/sysroot/usr/lib/libc.a(error.os): In function `error':
error.c:(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `error'
error.o:error.c:(.text+0x0): first defined here
/home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/host/usr/arm-buildroot-linux-uclibcgnueabi/sysroot/usr/lib/libc.a(error.os): In function `error_at_line':
error.c:(.text+0x138): multiple definition of `error_at_line'
error.o:error.c:(.text+0x120): first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
