While attempting to build qemu with USE=static a linking error occurred because I was missing the /usr/lib64/libpixman-1.a file.
The x11-libs/pixman ebuild does not have a static-libs or static use flag.
I downloaded the source for the current stable version of pixman in portage: x11-libs/pixman-0.38.4 from http://www.pixman.org/ and https://www.cairographics.org/releases/
The default for pixman is to compile both dynamic and static libraries, but portage is not installing the static libraries and offers no way to indicate that I do in fact need them compiled and installed for qemu to work with USE=static

x11-libs/pixman: Reintroduce static-libs USE flag
A couple of packages actually depend on this, even though it looks
static libs have not been installed since the transition to Meson. The
tree hasn't broken because they use [static-libs(+)].
