I know that many packages include only shared libraries for good reasons (although other distributions are less strict ). For deploying binaries on unusual hardware, static libraries are sometimes quite convenient. Do I have to build gcc on my own to get static libraries (like libgfortran.a) or is there any (unofficial) package gcc-libs-static or similar? My architecture is ARM.
Apparently not for ARM so you’ll have to build your own.
I’ve also reclassified this question into the ARM category so out ARM devs who know much more about this can contradict me
if I’m talking out of my arse.
