 But kxkb is a shared .so library (kdeinit module - hmm, and I'd personally 
prefer if it was a kicker applet). Some systems aren't probably going to like 
linking that with static .a library (unless libxkbfile.a is PIC, which I 
highly doubt). I don't know which specific OSes are those, Linux can handle 
that, but e.g. libtool warns if you link .a into .so .
 Would there be any serious problem with creating a small helper app linking 
against libxkbfile.a ?
