I'm confused as to what CMake actually does. Is it just a generator for
various makefile/IDE projects from a common description? Does it do
dependency tracking and incremental builds? Does it do MD5 summing? I gave
a cursory glance at the website but didn't find my answers.

For what I read in this thread it sounds like if I'm building my
documentation it should spit out a vcproj which and then open and hit build
on which then builds my quickbook application and all the libraries it
depends on if they don't exist or aren't up to date and then runs quickbook
to generate my boostbook xml then runs xlst-proc to generate my html
documentation. I don't really understand how that is possible.
