2.6.0 checks the library names specified to find_library() as filenames
first so you could do something like this to ensure that on a Unix build it
would pick up the static library first:
find_library(OPENSSL_LIBRARY NAMES libssl.a ssl)
Unfortunately this only works for CMake code that you can control. If one
had to use a CMake module to add an external dependency your idea would seem
to be the only viable option without modifying the module code itself.
