Due to fedora policy and the apparent inability of the current version of glibc to compile a true static binary, the dar-static package/binaries have not been built or included with this package. If you would like to build static binaries, you can download the source RPM file from the Fedora Extras repository and recompile it with "--with static" to enable the static binary and library files. -Chris Petersen, Fedora package maintainer, 2006-11-14
