Do we need libruby-static.a?
On install directory,
lib/libruby-static.a consumes 53MB on my Ubuntu 16 machine (4.4.0-42-generic, gcc 5.4.0). (Because I always use
--enable-shared option) libruby.so consumes 15MB on same build.
Can we drop this libruby-static.a file from install file list?
Does anyone use this file?
