Hm, we don't do this for any other -static packages. But I could see glibc being a special case.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

On further thought, considering how much we try and avoid supporting static binaries, I'm not sure we need to do this for now.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2010-01-20 15:01:35 EST
I admit I needed a few times to grab by hand glibc-static of the other arch, e.g. to test 32-bit prelink on x86_64 box.  But it wasn't just glibc-static, but also elfutils-libelf-devel-static, libselinux-static, etc.
