Presumably the static lib should go in a -devel package? I wouldn't
want to link cmake to the static lib though, that would defeat the
purpose of de-vendoring it and using separately packaged dependencies.

The default build script uses vendored dependencies which is
understandable for Kitware's own reproducibility and testing burden,
but generally not the way distros prefer to build cmake. Better to
follow the example of the way the existing package is built, but
updating the patches and accounting for new dependencies.
