I've come more or less to the bottom of this (found the stray). Turning up
the verbosity on the (failing) build output shows that the linker receives
amongst many other things this "z:\vcpkg\installed\x64-windows\lib\*.lib",
i.e. vcpkg is simply linking all libraries (so, I don't get why they do the
fancy erroneous renaming). And yes, it's not good, IMO.
