What need do you specifically have for static libraries?

its not a need - its a preference - i prefer static builds - the count of
programs i regularly build is small, so the redundancy doesnt hurt my use case.
also if I am to share my builds with others it makes for a smoother process - as
you can end up with a single exe. notice carefully that many projects offer
static and shared builds, here is one example:

if you choose to keep doing only shared builds it wont kill me, but it is an
annoyance because its that many more libraries i need to build, when I could
just download and link an already built static library - also notice carefully
that these type packages have some inconsistency - whereas the ones i listed
previously do not have static library - these here do:

1. mingw64-x86_64-curl
- usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libcurl.a

2. mingw64-x86_64-libgnurx

- usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libregex.a

3. mingw64-x86_64-openssl

- usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libssl.a

4. mingw64-x86_64-win-iconv
