A year ago I started working on automatic detection of the
compiler version for all vendors. When CMake detects the
compiler id (for CMAKE_C_COMPILER_ID) it uses the preprocessor
to recognize the compiler. There is no reason we cannot
get the compiler version at the same time (at least for C
and C++, but Fortran may be tricky even with preprocessing).
Unfortunately I never had time to get back to this. If you
want to try it I can send you what I have so far.
