This a a bit troublesome in our tree, looking at other repositories they
usually offer the static library as a separate package while we don't. There's
also concerns about users foot-shooting if the option is available, see
We do have ports that require static libraries however we also have a lot of
"unused" ones enabled at least as far as the ports tree goes. I guess one
option would adding the static library as a flavour but that would be a huge
