Yes, looking in the directory, I see a single .a file, starting with
'lib' (also the largest file in there). I guess this means it would be
easiest to create 2 separate packages, while changing the *.pro file for
the gui?
Thus only linking to the 'kernel' instead of making a single binary.

Changing the build procedures shouldn't be a problem for upstream.

Thank you for your response.
