Hi Marco,

Thanks for reply.

How can I elevate this minor change request to the maintainer?

Thanks, that is new to me.

When I run "./configure" without arguments, it is displayed:

checking whether to build shared libraries... yes
checking whether to build static libraries... yes

So the default setting seems to be OK. I have found out that
"--disable-static" is explicitly passed to configure, but it is not
listed in CYGCONF_ARGS in libxml2-2.7.7-1.cygport... Magic? Is there any
good reason to do this on purpose?
