To the libxml2 maintainer:
The libxml2-devel packages contains an import library (libxml2.dll.a),
but no static archive (libxml2.a). Most other packages do, e.g.
libpng12-devel. What is the reason for this?
I would like to suggest to add a static archive to allow
building statically linked binaries and for consistency
with other devel packages.
