Not seeing it, but libuuid.so is provided by libuuid-devel from EPEL.

Frequently, static libraries are not provided by CentOS / EPEL.

Is there a reason you need the static instead of dynamic?

If you, you probably have to rebuild the src.rpm after modifying the 
spec file to not delete the static library.
