Hi corey,

if a static linked library has changed the whole binary
should be recomplied. If make notices that any of the sources
are newer than the binary it recompiles. This behaviour should
be the same if the static lib is newer than the binary. 
That isn't the case. Can you explain this?

  For what behavior are you looking?
