Guix,

One-liners like this[0] one are about as fun to commit as they are 
to see spam up your -commits@ mailbox, and make me wonder why we 
don't pass ‘--disable-static’ (&c. for other build systems) by 
default in the absence of a :static output.  Has this been 
discussed and rejected?

Guix plays so poorly with static linkage that I'm surprised we 
keep these things lying around at all, like rakes to step on one 
fun day.

Kind regards,

T G-R

I don’t think it’s been discussed but I think it’s a good idea!

Hand-written ‘configure’ script will fail when passed
‘--disable-static’, but hopefully those already have a custom phase
because of the other flags we pass by default.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Seconded, and +1 for humor.
