Build shared libraries only as the default
Now that we have more options in terms of static/shared libraries, switch from the existing default of building both shared and static libraries to building shared libraries only (of course only on platforms that support shared libraries). Building both shared and static takes time (since the shared objects must be built with -fPIC, while static objects are generally built without, as -fPIC has some performance impact) and consumes a little bit more disk space. For example, a static+shared build of libglib2 takes 1 minutes and 59 seconds, with a final build directory of 96 MB. A shared-only build of libglib2 takes only 1 minutes and 31 seconds (almost a 25% reduction of the build time), and the final build directory weights 89 MB (a reduction of almost 8%). So, switching to a shared library only build brings some useful build time and build size benefits. Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <email@example.com> Acked-by: "Yann E.
