I know it's beside the point of your post, but I can't resist.

I do this in the following way.

a) I set up a cached boolean variable USE_STATIC
b) I use the CMake script

   add_library(myproject STATIC ${PROJECT_SRC})
   add_library(myproject SHARED ${PROJECT_SRC})

Then I generate two different versions and can
switch back and forth between them.

You see this in the serialization library CMake files
