Comment 4 Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2021-12-13 19:07:48 UTC
--disable-static is enforced by portage, not by ebuild.

Upstream doesn't support this option because it provides no libraries or statically build binaries.

So either portage should not enforce this option everywhere, or QA check should ignore this warning for --disable-static option.
Comment 5 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2021-12-13 21:01:02 UTC
The portage behavior is specified by PMS. There is nothing the portage team can really do about it.

See also bug 814368.
Comment 6 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-12-13 21:05:07 UTC
I'm guessing this is because of:

  --enable-static-linking         Use static linking instead of dynamic linking (ie. LDFLAGS=-static)
Comment 7 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2021-12-13 21:07:43 UTC
I think it would be acceptable to ignore this bug report until a new EAPI provides a way to resolve it.
