Build without .so files

Hi,

It looks like last year a change was merge removing the need to dlopen the backend libraries [1].

Right now, even if I configure with flags like "—disable-shared --enable-static" it seems that I still endup with .so files and that tools like eu-readelf depend on it. So what is the official way today to have a fully static build ?

I saw BUILD_STATIC in configure.ac, but it seems to be enabled only for gcov/gprof builds. Would it make sense to take —disable-shared here ?

Cheers,
Romain
