Which is in each case annoying and at Gentoo we have quite often bug reports to sort out this library inlusion mess and send patches upstream. In case of Qt you're wrong. It allows to use system libraries. Let me state it again: Fromthe security point of view, senseless included libraries are a hazard. Its a lot more work, a lot more packages are to update and there's always the chance you miss a package leaving users with a vulnerable application. There're very very few reasons to link statically, e.g. on embedded systems or stuff you need at boot time, but there's nothing that justifies it for desktop applications.

I think comment #58 is the best option both for you, not getting duplicates of this bug report as well as us downstream.
