No, that's fundamentally impossible. If an app and a library get split, the
app's buildsystem will expect the library to be compiled *and installed*
before the app is configured.
To build them in a monolithic tarball again, there are two ways: configure
lib, compile lib, install lib, configure app, compile app, install app (what
superbuild does); or *modify* the app's buildsystem to (optionally?) work as
it did before, grabbing the library from the build directory.
The whole point of superbuild is letting you create a monolithic tarball
without modifying anything from the individual components being built.
