"libpython3.4m.a" is not part of the package, although it is built by the makepkg.

$ sudo pacman -Ql python | grep -i libpython
python /usr/lib/
python /usr/lib/

This is intentional, as static libs are stripped. Is there any valid reason other than "I don't want my software to depend on python" why you need the static libs?

I was attempting to compile the static version of luxrender using the official ( compilation tools and was asked for it…
As I saw it was built, I thought there was a mistake in the PKGBUILD…

It was intentional:

If you really need static libs, please adjust PKGBUILD options to keep staticlibs, and build it yourself.
