6 There is already a "static" flag, and that's what it actually does
7 for some packages (most gnome-related libs for instance).
9 Side note: i'm not saying it's the perfect solution though, at
10 least not until USE-deps get supported by portage... Imho,
11 it's two different things to "statically compile an application"
12 and to "also provide the static version of a library". If it was
13 two separate flags, i would probably leave the first one off, but
14 turn on the second, because i care less about the wasted space than
15 about random compilation issues with packages who want libxml2.a or
16 things like that. Sure with USE-deps it would be different since
17 this packages could depend on "dev-libs/libxml2:+static" (or
18 whatever syntax it will be).
