CMAKE_STATIC_LINKER_FLAGS
-------------------------
Linker flags to be used to create static libraries.
Flags to be used to create static libraries. These flags will be passed
to the archiver when creating a static library.
These flags will be used by the linker when creating a static library.
See also :variable:`CMAKE_STATIC_LINKER_FLAGS_<CONFIG>`.
.. note::
Static libraries do not actually link. They are essentially archives
of object files. The use of the name "linker" in the name of this
variable is kept for compatibility.
