libcbor is closely knit to libfido2 and there's fortunately no other
package in the distro yet relying on libcbor.

Given that the 0.X releases are not binary compatible with each other
(which hopefully changes with the 1.X releases), I will change libcbor
to a static library only for the time being, and rebuild libfido2
against that static lib.
