The cmake option DISABLE_SHARED was originally implemented to enable building of only static libraries.
It has not been maintained since MySQL 5.6
With the current plethora of plugins and components, and dynamic linking of SSL and protobuf,
the option no longer makes any sense. Remove it.

How to repeat:
Read the code.

Suggested fix:
See description.

Fixed in 8.0.18.

The DISABLE_SHARED CMake option was unused and has been removed.
