I doubt most of the static libraries our packages ship ever get used, so
I strongly support getting rid of all that dead weight (that's 115M on
my system, for instance). If needed, we can explicitly re-add
options=('staticlibs') to core libraries' PKGBUILD, but that should
really be the exception rather than the rule.
