Oops, I mixed up functionality with other platforms.  On platforms
that do not have `-headerpad_max_install_names` we generate bogus
rpath content in the build tree to pad out enough space to replace
it in the installed binary in the install tree.  That behavior is
turned off by BUILD_WITH_INSTALL_RPATH.  On Apple platforms with
`-headerpad_max_install_names` the flag is simply hard-coded.
CMake would indeed need a new abstraction for `-fembed-bitcode`.

Also, CMP0068 means the BUILD_WITH_INSTALL_NAME_DIR should be used

Sure we can.  CMP0068 is only about the names of the CMake properties
that influence the behavior.  The INSTALL_NAME_DIR property can be
set to "@rpath".
