I'd rather not install static libraries. What need do you have for this?

Many ports install both dynamic and static libraries. Are there any disadvantages of additionally installing static libraries besides disk space?

What need do you have for this?

Well, sometimes you don't want a user to be able to easily change the crypto code of your application.

Yes. Installing them means someone might actually use them... which makes maintenance difficult.

I'd rather make it easier to issue bugfixes and security fixes for your application.
