Yes.  XFree86 4.3.0 ships several important libraries static only (I've
heard libXau and libxkb* are a problem for amd64, static libXfont and
libXxf86dga are stupid in general, static libXxf86vm is bad for new
libGL).  In CVS they've made several of them shared, but not all from
what I'm told.  I'd been hoping AMD64 folks would patch
XFree86-4-libraries appropriately (it sounds like some have already done
it locally), but nobody has yet.  I'm pretty busy with xserver stuff at
the moment so I probably won't get to it.

Most of the static libraries problems will go away once we move to
freedesktop.org libraries and XFree86-4-libraries becomes much smaller.
