  The support is already there from upstream. As far as I have read the 
patches in the debian package they simply use that ability already provided 
# DP: Actually implement the rules to create shared libraries.

  Please put that patch back. I promise to review it carefully. :-)

  Again I was not completely clear here, when I said docs I meant %docs. :-) 
  Static libraries are always a liability, they increase the code size and 
add the burden of security risks. That is why I insist here, please don't be 
discouraged by my comments. 
I really appreciate the work you have been 
done with this package. My research field lies between mathematics 
and physics so I will be really happy to have cernlib in FE. :-)
