no ... the current policy (and i see no reason to change it) is:
 - always build shared and static libs
 - always build shared libs and control static libs via USE=static-libs

so if the library can be statically linked against, the ebuild needs
to support it.  a valid test is not "does any other package in the
tree want to link against this", nor is "i dont want static libs, and
i cant find anyone who does".  most people dont want to do static
linking most of the time, but that number is not 0.
