Are you trying to use CMake to link to a static build of Qt?

I don't think anyone has ever tested that combination.

In order for it to work properly, CMake needs to parse the libQt5Core.prl file 
to get the full list of libraries that need to be linked to. This is a 
mandatory step and I don't think it does that.
