I didn't told anything about speed. I advocated static libs to for portability
reasons. To let the user the possibility to link statically. Even if the 
speed is reduced by 90%, my point still holds.

Maybe I wasn't clear about one thing. I think that the fedora packages 
should never be linked against static libs when shared libs exist, but that 
the static libs should be shipped if a user want to link statically 
(for numerical and plotting libs).
