firebird : does not adhere to Static Library Packaging Guidelines
Last modified: 2013-08-08 14:37:24 EDT
If a library you depend on only provides a static version your package can link against it provided that you BuildRequire the *-static subpackage. Packagers in such a situation should be aware that if a shared library becomes available, that you should adjust your package to use the shared library.
