First of all remember this: Your CmakeList files do not execute any of
these things: what they do is to write new makefiles for you.  In order
to succeed with CMake, what you need to do is figure out how to tell
CMake the things that need to be in your new makefiles so that those
makefiles will do the necessary things that your old makefiles do.
