Packaging static libraries is a bit unusual in Fedora, since it is
better to link things dynamically; only few packages provide static

The -devel package usually only contains development headers and
the .so symlink to the dynamic library, so in 99% of the cases you just
make the -static package require the -devel package, which contains all
of the necessary stuff.
