[Slackbuilds-users] mupdf and dynamic vs. static linking

Hello there,

Something I got reminded of by the recent update...

By default the mupdf software package builds and links against a static 
library, resulting in a 123MB txz package containing several 33MB 

The LFS project has a patch that applies cleanly and switches to a dynamic 
build, resulting in a much more sensible 20MB txz package.


I've been using the LFS patch for quite a while over several versions of 
mupdf without any problems.

Could the LFS patch be added to the SlackBuild?
