/CMake 3.15


Some linkers support switches such as -Bstatic and -Bdynamic to determine whether to use static or shared libraries for -lXXX options. CMake uses these options to set the link type for libraries whose full paths are not known or (in some cases) are in implicit link directories for the platform. By default CMake adds an option at the end of the library list (if necessary) to set the linker search type back to its starting type. This property switches the final linker search type to -Bstatic regardless of how it started.

This variable is used to initialize the target property LINK_SEARCH_END_STATIC for all targets. If set, it’s value is also used by the try_compile() command.
