They have internal LTCG code in them that is specific to your compiler, we 
strip that out in shared libraries. I have this experimental patch hanging 
around https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/242518/ which makes it possible 
to generate pure native static archives without any LTO/LTCG intermediate code 
in them.
