The shaderc_static pkg-config file points to a library that is not shipped with the package.

$ grep Libs /usr/lib/pkgconfig/shaderc_static.pc
Libs: -L${libdir} -lshaderc -lshaderc_util
$ pacman -Ql shaderc | grep shaderc_util
(no output)

This would be fixed by shipping libshaderc_util.a.
HOWEVER due to the fact that shaderc_combined does everything shaderc_static does, Arch could also opt to not ship shaderc_static.pc.
This bug not being noticed earlier further suggests that no application actually uses shaderc_static.

Additional info:
* shaderc 2021.2-1
This task depends upon

I can confirm the observed omission of 'shaderc_util.a' and I concur that shaderc_static.pc should be removed.
