      Description

      With JDK-8203294 we enabled static linking of libgcc and libstdc++ in support of compiling with gcc 7.3. Most of the libraries got somewhat larger (in the 1-10% range). The libjfxmedia.so library is now 7 times as large. Before static linking it was about 230 Kbytes; it's now about 1.6 Mbytes.

      We should see if there is anything we can do to reduce the size.
