I have a PR opened at:
that adds “pkgsStatic” which can be used to build statically linked packages from the original package set. This is very similar with how pkgsMusl works, but pkgsStatic also adds a “cross” overlay that modifies things to always build statically when possible. Unlike with most overlays, though, crossOverlays will only override the packages you are building, not your build tools. It is able to use a lot of the cross infrastructure to accomplish this.
What are the opinions on this? Are static packages something that we want to build? Or does this increase the scope too much.
