Stali is definately a topic, forgot to mention this. The project idea
a colleague of mine at work came up with is creating wether a
completely new ld or ld wrapper at the least to collect all info when
a shared lib/executable is linked and using this info to create a
static library/executable instead, basically kind of a tee ld if you
like, where one result invisible to the caller is a static lib instead
of a dynamic one ;) This would enable building nearly everything
statically without the need of extra makefiles. I don't consider this
approach for the base system, since the value in it is all about
decent make files, but this might be a cool project for all other
stuff and would fit the GSoC scope quite well.
