Can you provide the patch you used to build static gtk? There is no patch in mingw-w64-pango.

It is simply that a single .exe looks nicer than the .exe and lots of .dlls. Anyway, I tried forcing the configure script to ignore platform check - and it can actually build static libraries. My application even worked with gtk.a linked statically and all the rest of libraries (like gdk, pango) as DLLs. One big problem is that both GTK and GDK has DllMain which causes linking errors. The devs use DLLs entry point for something, this is why they don't allow building statics for Windows.

PS: I'm not asking for anything, just sharing my thoughts. :)

Do we really need static libraries? The staticlibs does not mean it contains static libraries. It is used to keep .dll.a files.

That is to link DLLs. configure says "WARNING: Disabling static library build, must build as DLL on Windows." Either static build is not supported or there's a patch to force it as it was for pango library.

This package has .dll.a installed in /usr/i686-w64-mingw32/lib.

The package doesn't have static librarbies.

this line is useless (comes with base-devel):
makedepends+=(autoconf automake libtool)

gobject-introspection (introspection.m4) is not installed, so autoreconf fails. I will upload a new PKGBUILD which removes dependency on introspection.m4.

Could you please confirm that this builds. See log file here
