Issue: dev-util/ragel misses USE=static-libs and installs '.a' files.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)
The best solution is avoid to build the '.a' files by touching the configure. In case the buildsystem makes your life hard, a good compromise would be just remove the files.
NOTE: If you want to change the summary, to avoid auto-filed duplicates, please at least keep the word 'static-libs'
We could POSSIBLY drop it from Ragel, but not Colm - which broke building Ragel itself.
Both packages are by thee same upstream and I wouldn't be surprised if consumers expect to statically link. :/
