static builds for Qt are outside of my experience.  Most Qt 5-using
software no longer uses QTDIR directly, rather the qmake (or qmake-qt5
depending on your distro) tool is run to query the right path for Qt

I believe Qt installs CMake config files, so perhaps it is possible
that CMake is finding those for your shared Qt libs and then preferring
them?  CMAKE_MODULE_PATH (as an environment variable) should control
where CMake looks for CMake config files, you may want to make sure that
your /path/to/static/qt/lib/cmake is placed first in that environment

Other than that I'm not sure.
