You can notice that many packages have left out commands that are in 
command explanations. Sometimes we just want to point users to something 
important like "use x if you haven't installed y" or "use x if you have 
installed y" or we just provide just general information like the text 
you pointed to. It is up to user to decide. We just mention it.

.oO(We tend to disable static libs in most packages, why hasn't anyone 
disabled this one by default)
