[arch-dev-public] Stripping of static libraries by makepkg
public at dicebot.lv

My default makepkg.conf looks like this:
#-- Options to be used when stripping shared libraries. See `man strip'
#-- Options to be used when stripping static libraries. See `man strip'
Is there any reasons why static libraries have "--strip-debug" instead
of "--strip-unneeded"? I have noticed that because compiler package I
maintain in [community] has produced bloated executables because of
static linking with only partially stripped standard library. Are there
any dangerous consequences from switching to "--string-unneeded"?
