Removing Static Libraries

Hi, I'm halfway through chapter 6 of the LFS book and I just have one 
question regarding the static libraries which were installed during 
chapter 5.  Now that I'm compiling everything with dynamic libraries 
instead of static, do I really need the old static libraries lying 
around?  Is it safe to remove them to save some space?  If so, what 
would be the best way, as i don't think doing a rm *.a on the whole 
system sounds like a good idea.
