I looked at this issue briefly a couple months ago, but was too busy to make
a ctest fix at the time. The problem with SystemInformation on Mac OSX is
that the command lines used to gather the information do not use a full path
to execute the programs. We should do a FIND_PROGRAM equivalent and use the
full path to the programs because the environment of running from a crontab
entry does not have the same PATH setup that a typical Mac terminal shell

I just opened a cmake/ctest bug and assigned it to myself so it does not get
lost in the shuffle...
