The change went a bit further, as I mentioned previously, in that even
on linux machines the builds do not create static libs. I think it
reasonable that the libs can be built both static and dynamic, like
everything else, but the documentation can state that the static libs
(on win32) should only be used for certain circumstances. Unless I am
missing something, if they are conditionally compiled, then the link
will fail to find the proper symbols anyway.
