it sounds really broken that you static link to this lib. Shared
libraries are good. Shared libraries mean that if there's a security
hole in one of them, you don't need to replace the entire distribution!
(I still remember zlib from a few years ago ;-)

esp something as extended attributes sounds like semi-security sensitive
so I wonder why Fedora even ships the .a at all...
