Change: [CMake] Bump minimal version to 3.9 #8643

merged 2 commits into from Feb 7, 2021

@glx22 glx22 commented Feb 5, 2021

Motivation / Problem

With CMake minimum version set to anything before 3.9, for some unknown reason (maybe vcpkg as it happens only for Windows and MacOS targets), CMP0069 policy is reset between CMake configuration and generation steps.
This triggers a CMake warning and cause INTERPROCEDURAL_OPTIMIZATION property to be ignored.


Since IPO support detection and CMP0069 policy were introduced in 3.9, it's simpler to set the minimum CMake version and get working interprocedural optimisation.
CMake 3.7 introduced a FindICU module, but our own module is better. So I kept our own, with a notice about why we don't use CMake provided module.
I also updated to indicate minimum CMake version, and some hints for MSVC users when libraries are installed but not found.


Some linux distribution may only have older CMake version as standard, but I think on most there's a way to update it.
