Ah indeed. It worked!
To recap: I have added the following to MyApp PRO file:
PRE_TARGETDEPS += $$PWD/../staticlib/debug/staticlib.lib
It’s a bit pity that PRE_TARGETDEPS takes the absolute path to the file rather

and naming conventions)
Exactly. For cross-platform projects this is a big pain point of qmake.
You've already got recommendations for "bigger hammers", but I recommend
to have a look at qbs where this particular case of dependency tracking
works out of the box.
