To uncover what apps tries to link static library instead of dynamic one. :-)
The main reasons for that is follows:
1) Using shared library will decrease the memory usage
2) Using shared library will allow one to fix security vulnerables in lcms
   just by updating this library. Otherwise, we have no intention what
   ports need to be documented in the vuxml database in case of a security
   vulnerability. Applications that link static libraries instead of shared ones
   will be still vulnerable even after updating the library port.
