it is written in the pkgbuild :
# pacman.static build fails unless we keep the libtool files (or unless we link
# the missing symbols inside the libarchive .a static lib, but that is dirty)

though pacman.static is no longer in pacman package, but afaik there
is a pacman-static package on aur.

it seems there are also a few other packages depending on libarchive,
and I don't know about them. But I don't think doing static build is
the common case.
