dar-static build failure


The dar package is accumulating a number of easy to fix bugs, however
due to a change in another package, it will no longer build anymore.
See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=632889

The only thing I can find in the changelog is from a NMU:

=== cut ===
libgpg-error (1.10-0.1) experimental; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * debian/libgpg-error-dev.install:
    + don't install unavailable libgpg-error.a

=== cut ===

The problem is that the configure test tries to determine if it can
build the static version or not, and this check fails:

=== cut ===
configure:31794: g++ -o conftest -g -O2 -g -O2 -Wall  -static
conftest.cpp -lpthread -lattr -lgcrypt -lgpg-error -lbz2 -lz -ldl  >&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgpg-error
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
=== cut ===

So as a result, it doesn't build the static program.

What should I do?
