No, but I have some scripts built around repoquery that I used to 
use to verify that library followed the guidelines, that packages 
with both shared libraries and static libraries had static libraries
in a separate subpackage, and that no package was built against static
libs except when necessary. It also listed the packages linked against
static libraries. The most annoying bug I found that is not already fixed
is with libruby having static lib, explained in 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=428384
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=454121

I have also sent all this in a mail I sent after leaving fedora, with
the script I used (that needs work).

In my recalling there wern't that many static libs used in links, and
not that many packages built against static libs.
