Description Stephen Torri 2003-11-23 15:02:52 UTC
I would like to know how hard it would be to add a new qt package to the portage
system that is built statically? At present it would only require adding a new
package, named qt-static, which installed the static libraries and adding a one
word change to the ebuild files. The configure script for the qt library by
default builds a shared library but adding '-static' to the command line gives
only static libraries. The configure script is not setup to do both.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
Built '.a' libraries so users can built static QT applications.

You're welcome to create a local ebuild for this in your overlay directory, but we're not going to support two separate versions.  Sorry.
