Summary: Can we have libpTk.a built shared within perl-Tk ?
Description of problem: libpTk.a is built statically within perl-Tk package.
This file isn't provided, so any dependency that what to extend the widget for
perl-Tk will need to build again this static library.
I would be better to have a shared built instead (if doable)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): current perl-Tk
Steps to Reproduce:
1. built a perl-Tk dependency that extend the widget capability
(case study perl-Tk-TableMatrix, see #444745)
2. by default it will build the libpTk.a again
3. Each Shared Objet widget will pick from libpTk.a as needed, raising the size
of the resulting .so (if not having duplicate code).
-llibpTk is using libpTk.a
-llibpTk should use libpTk.so
The related licenses files should probably be added to the package.
