Interesting that you see this Deprecation Warning. It turns out that CMake
deprecated version older than 2.8.12:

Compatibility with versions of CMake older than 2.8.12 is now deprecated and
will be removed from a future version. Calls to cmake_minimum_required() or
cmake_policy() that set the policy version to an older value now issue a
deprecation diagnostic.

For more details see https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.20/release/3.19.html. We
could decide to increase the minimum required version to something more recent,
like version 3.0 to avoid this warning. If we do so, I am willing to make
another update to the CMake build configuration.

Yes, this adding -static only happens for MSVC to avoid a library name clash.
As you observed it does not happen for Unix/Linux.
