May be, but like Max has stated, I don't like to be forced to make every static
lib as shared lib. This would break the whole kde build system, because often
convenience librarys are build and assembled together into a dll. May be, that's
the reason, why on linux and other systems "pass_all" is used, because it
overrides this police.
case $linkmode in
if test "$deplibs_check_method" != pass_all; then
echo "*** Warning: Trying to link with static lib archive $deplib."
echo "*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link
echo "*** you link to this library. But I can only do this if you have
echo "*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have"
echo "*** because the file extensions .$libext of this argument makes me
echo "*** that it is just a static archive that I should not used here."
