We don't want to do wildcard expansion in CMake commands.  We want to leave
it up to the shell to expand wildcards on the command line, or have explicit
file(GLOB) commands in CMake script code.

I've applied the patches from the previous post, with a slightly
different breakdown and some fixes to the test:

 cmake: Improve '-E' help message formatting

 cmake: Teach -E copy[_if_different] to support multiple files (#15703)
