(replying to myself, I know)
Looked up the related thread in the pacman-dev archives (since I knew
there'd be one. :P) It was a short thread, but Dan makes a good
"Yeah, I think it has always been one of those "I hope it works" type
things. In any case, I think this is more appropriate for the pacman
PKGBUILD if we truely want a static build, rather than in the pacman
Does the PKGBUILD do this? Should it?
