Because ELF supports linking a shared library to another shared library, which will automatically get you the appearance of the historical "libresolv is integrated into libc". But it does not support the linking of a static library to a static library, or a static library to a shared library, the same way. The ELF specification never expected things to be linked statically. -- Terry To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
