New in version 3.17.
Target link properties
are now transitive over private dependencies of static libraries.
In CMake 3.16 and below the interface link properties attached to libraries are not propagated for private dependencies of static libraries. Only the libraries themselves are propagated to link the dependent binary. CMake 3.17 and later prefer to propagate all interface link properties. This policy provides compatibility for projects that have not been updated to expect the new behavior.
OLD behavior for this policy is to not propagate interface link

when this policy is not set and simply uses
