Missing static libraries in current versions of mingw64 expat (x86 and x64)
Mon Dec 12 02:24:00 GMT 2016
I am trying to do some cross-compiling with cross compilers:
i686-w64-mingw32-gcc and x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc, with the expat
As of now, Cygwin provides two versions: 'previous' (2.1.1-2) and
Previous versions have both static (libexpat.a) and shared versions
Current versions do not have static versions; only shared.
Is it an oversight or are there some reasons for the lack of it?
Thanks for your help.
