i missed this sentence from Michał's e-mail. unconditionally not building
static libraries is against policy. if you install shared libs that get
linked against, then you must provide static libraries unconditionally as well
or support IUSE=static-libs. maintainers do not get to choose "no one has
asked for it and no one in the tree is using it thus my ebuild isnt going to".
