Linking a static library to an interface library -> no such library when used outside
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
First, there is no error with the following:
add_library(a INTERFACE) add_library(b STATIC) target_link_libraries(b PRIVATE a) install(TARGETS b EXPORT foo)
set_target_properties(b PROPERTIES INTERFACE_LINK_LIBRARIES "$<LINK_ONLY:a>")
in the targets file which causes users of b to not be able to find 'a'.
However, I would like for 'a' to just not show up at all in the export file (which I think makes sense for INTERFACE libraries linked to via PRIVATE).
