See my other reply regarding that but I wanted to interject that I don't
agree about .a files being useless without the other libraries that they
depend upon.  That's only the case if your goal is to get a fully
statically compiled binary.  It's certainly possible there are
situations where you'd want to statically link some thing (zlib) and not
others (glibc).
