Ok. A set of Moira packages using the shared libmoira is now in production, so athdir, dsk, gms, usp, and Xj are the only statically linked libraries left.

    initial v11  
    1 The seven libraries we package for Debathena are currently only available as static libraries.  This causes two problems.  First, changing the libraries requires recompiling any binaries that use them.  Second, [http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html Debian policy] requires shared libraries to be compiled with -fPIC and static libraries without; that means that static libraries may not be linked into shared libraries, and indeed this causes problems on some architectures (at least amd64).
