when ./configure is run with --disable-shared, is there a way to invoke the pkg-config macro with --static (so that it does not select private libraries in the .pc file)?

You can just use pkg-config --static all the time, unless
 ( disable_static && ( host_os == Linux || host_os == Solaris ) )

Works wonders! :-)

mhhh... so basically this means that it is better not to use Libs.private in the pkg-config file, and always have all the libraries dependences right?


Once Libtool has been fixed to allow specifying separate dependencies
for static and shared libs (it might have a special API for pkg-config
at that point), this can be revisited.

It seems that LT_INIT has been executed, the shell environment variables enable_shared and enable_static are set to 'yes' if shared and/or static libraries will be built. You can test these environment variables to determine the parameter to pass to pkg-config.
but this cannot be done using the pkg-config autoconf macro, can it?

This is a question you might need to ask on the pkg-config list.

done, let's see what they say :-)
