Description Frank Belew (frb) 2003-02-26 08:50:55 EST
Description of problem:
There are no static libraries for any of the packages in the gnome2 library set.
This includes glib2

I'd be happy even if they were in a separate package  such as glib2-static
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2003-02-26 09:42:52 EST
$ rpm -qpl glib2-devel-2.2.1-1.i386.rpm | grep '\.a'

They are there for glib2. (As of relatively recently.) Above that,
it gets to be a huge PITA to do static libraries because of the
heavy use of dynamically loaded modules. Plus, Pango and GTK+
require various config files on the system for correct operation,
so it doesn't real give you the "distribute binary without library"
thing that people usually want static libs for.
