It may be because we still want to support OS-X 10.4 .
Yes -- we are still supporting Mac OS X 10.3.9 and later (the same
versions supported by python.org python).
It will be a relief to stop building those libraries, but they're easy
enough to build and some of them are newer than the versions originally
supplied with Mac OS X (including libz and libfreetype) so it's not
necessarily a bad thing to include static versions.
