  Statically linking the mono executable is mostly done to improve the speed
of thread-local
access, to ease debugging etc. Note that only libmono is linked statically
into the runtime,
the other dependencies like libglib are not. If fedora doesn't like static
libs, you can omit them from the package, while still building them.
