Why is libphobos not a shared library?

So, we've been toying with using D on embedded systems, and one of the 
things that struck us as strange is that our emitted binaries don't link 
against a shared libphobos, and indeed, one does not even seem to be 
created when building GDC. Was this a conscious design decision? If so, 
why? Are there any plans to change it to use a shared library?
