--- Comment #4 from Dmitry Marakasov <amdmi3 at FreeBSD.org> ---
This is expected behavior. Static libs do not track dependencies, so while with
shared linking all dependent libs are linked automatically, with static linking
that's not the case, and you need to specify all indirectly required libraries
(e.g. ones used by libIL itself) manually. From what I see from the video, you
have undefined references to symbols from libjasper, libnvtt, libjbig, and you
don't have these in your LIBS.

One solution is to stick to shared linking, another is to use `pkg-config
--libs --static IL` output instead of hardcoded library list, that's also much
more portable, as the lib list may vary across different OS/distros (and even
on FreeBSD, if you rebuild devil port with non-default options).

One thing not clear to me is that you've written that the behavior is different
on i386 compared to amd64. That can't be the case.
