Looks like the CMake argument used to switch between static/shared objects has either changed or there is a typo in the documentation.

Noticed warnings when using the `BUILD_SHARED_LIBRARIES` variable in the README about it not being used, and didn't find static '.a' libraries in Linux once built with it set to `off`.  However, after examining the CMakeLists.txt, it would appear the correct variable name is `BUILD_SHARED_LIBS`.  I was able to build the static libraries when using the latter variable.

This is a typo in the readme. The correct CMake option is BUILD_SHARED_LIBS. Thanks for alerting us.
