Yes. I tried to do that once and just lost interest before getting it working
(didn't take long). Really though, <rant> I find it annoying to install a
library that is statically linked by only one application into my lib
directories. There's already way too much useless crapola and
redundancy-because-everyone-wants-to-start-their-own-project-these-days in the
typical linux distro's library directory(ies) these days.</rant>
