Details

Description: OK, there is no rule about this in Arch Linux. But is a good idea to keep static libs under /usr/lib instead of /lib. Acording to FHS recomendations /lib is only for shared libs.

# ls -lh /lib/libreadline.a /lib/libhistory.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 34K 2009-06-12 18:02 /lib/libhistory.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 290K 2009-06-12 18:02 /lib/libreadline.a

In the previous version the static libraries was is /usr/lib

Additional info:
readline-6.0.00-1
This task depends upon

oops!, See [#1] lftp fails to compile

shared libs that are on /lib and also provides a static version in
/usr/lib must have a symlink in /usr/lib/ that points to shared lib in /lib

Trivial example:

# gcc foo.c -o foo -lreadline
# readelf -d foo | grep readline
# ln -s ../../lib/libreadline.so /usr/lib/libreadline.so
# gcc foo.c -o foo -lreadline
# readelf -d foo | grep readline
0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libreadline.so.6]

Please add these lines to the PKGBUILD

ln -s ../../lib/libhistory.so $pkgdir/usr/lib/libhistory.so
ln -s ../../lib/libreadline.so $pkgdir/usr/lib/libreadline.so
