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.
