Re: Bug#622931: libav: pkg-config files implies possible static linkage

Just to make it clear, what you want is a way for a package (libA) to
say «you can't build this statically»? If so, there's no way to do that
with pkg-config and unless you can convince me what the use case is and
why this is worth supporting, I'm not going to add it.
