The increase on test execution time is huge so I only use it for
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug where I only tend to run a small set of tests
Having both -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=on & -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=off configurations
is handy when you add #include:
-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=on on Linux enables -Wl,-z,defs which requires every
shared object to have full direct dependencies specified (gold and ld.lld
behavior; not in GNU ld),
basically "link what you use" (similar to "include what you use").
