Thomas, All,

On 2014-12-11 23:50 +0100, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> This commit turns the single static option into a choice, which offers
> various possibilities:
> 
>  1. Build and use static libraries only;
>  2. Build both shared and static libraries, but use shared libraries;
>  3. Build and use shared libraries only.
> 
> On most platforms, (2) is currently the default, and kept as the
> default in this commit. Of course, on certain platforms (Blackfin,
> m68k), only option (1) will be available.
> 
> In addition to the introduction of the Config.in options, this commit
> also:
> 
>  * Removes the 'select BR2_STATIC_LIBS' from 'BR2_BINFMT_FLAT', since
>    with the use of a choice, we are guaranteed that BR2_STATIC_LIBS
>    will be selected when the binary format is BR2_BINFMT_FLAT, since
>    BR2_STATIC_LIBS will be the only possible solution in the choice.
> 
>  * Changes package/Makefile.in to use the proper
>    --{enable,disable}-{shared,static} options for autotools packages.
