The dynamic libraries are in the ldc package, the static library and the module sources in the ldc-dev package (names probably no quite right, I am currently on Fedora and it's not easy to check.
I think building from Git should create both dynamic and static always.

I'll see what I can do. For now I have put a hack into SCons based on phobos2-ldc being the correct name and phobos-ldc being a Fedora aberration.

At the moment I am not using D at all, just keeping as up-to-date as I can, I have though had to fix the SCons D tooling to try and get "all green" ready for a new SCons release.
The issue has been the -defaultlib option that is required to build shared libraries.
