Yes, looking at the build tree it says $ du -sm 8079 Nevertheless, I am starting to be worried about the size of the overall project. I don't know if it is really worth to have the static version of the library. It doubles build times and space requirements. Furthermore, it is typically aimed at developers, and popcon results show that OSG is mainly used as a dependency for other projects and not for developing. If at least the static build were complex, its usefulness could be proven, but experience tells me that usually developers are compiling their own versions from the SVN upstream anyway. I had an idea of making a separate package for the static libraries in order to have popcon results saying what it real impact is, but now I just think that we could skip the burden of asking for permission to the ftp masters in order to create a new package and just not build them. Therefore debian/rules could be as small and lean as those other project of yours, pruning all that casuistic code that plagues the current version.
