Neil, thank you very much for your insightful summary of the matter. Now it seems pretty clear that this issue cannot be handled in the libav package, but needs to be solved at the pkg-config level. I'm therefore reassigning this bug to pkg-config.
Couldn't we simply drop the *.private fields in the .pc files to signalize we don't support static linking?
