    BUILD_STATIC_LIBS is a makefile variable which determines whether components are built statically by default.

    Set By

    BUILD_STATIC_LIBS is set in by the configure script responding to the --enable-static configure option.


    In a static build, the component libraries are made into static libraries and then linked into the final executable. For this to work correctly, components that should be linked into the final executable should have EXPORT_LIBRARY set. If a component should always be made into a dynamic library, the makefile should override this setting with FORCE_SHARED_LIB and should not set EXPORT_LIBRARY.
