What about for library dependencies for different build configurations, such
as release and debug?

Suppose I have a_d.lib and a_d.o for debug, and a.lib and a.o for release.
What would I do in this case? Must I use the if conditionals for this as
well? Not sure how CMake handles this common scenario.
