You can't build the plugin itself as a static library, as then Bro
couldn't load it dynamically at runtime. You should however be able to
link DPDK statically into your (dynamic) plugin, if that's what you
need? If so, I would think that CMake actually does the right there
already if all it finds for a dependency is a static library.
