           Summary: Static library dependencies
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: alexander at linuxfromscratch.org

Some static library dependencies are not satisfied during the normal build
process. E.g., SDL depends on ALSA, but there is no libasound.a by default, and
we still build libSDL.a. This results e.g. in qemu refusing to compile (it wants
to link completely statically).

Possible fixes:
1) Add --enable-static to alsa-lib (tested, works)
2) Add --disable-static to SDL (not tested)

I am sure that there are more such bad cases in the book.
