CMake's ExternalProject Support




I was recently surprized by the power of the CMake ExternalProject support. 
I have used it once for something very simple, but I obviously mis-judged
the depth of support that is there.  It seems very extensive on second reading.

This may be of interest to Windows or MAC developers who need an external
library and cannot be sure it is there, without something like this to go
get it and make it happen.

Clearly there is some advantage to having a single driver program (CMake)
tie all the pieces together.
