Why is it necessary if I only built a static library?
(How does a user on a random system know that his
admin only installed a static library?)
And how am I supposed to pass this option only
for x265? I don't want all libraries to be linked
statically just because there is no dynamic x265
on my system.
I originally thought that this is just a choice
between different working solutions depending on what
is easier for users. It is funny how many bugs this
"working" pkg-config solution has after looking at it
for a short period of time.
