2) How can I persuade find_library() to only search for static

You can't.

Yes, you can:

  find_library(MATH_LIB NAMES libm.a)

If you specify a valid library name then CMake will look for it directly
instead of prepending 'lib' and appending library extensions.

The reason there is no generic "find a static library" option is because
it is almost impossible to implement on windows where one cannot distinguish
import libraries and static libraries by their name.
