openage autocancer-like cmake frontend.
Together with the Makefile, ./configure provides an autotools-like build
experience. For more info, see --help and doc/buildsystem.

DESCRIPTION = """./configure is a convenience script:
it creates the build directory, symlinks it,
and invokes cmake for an out-of-source build.
Nobody is stopping you from skipping ./configure and our Makefile,
and using CMake directly (e.g. when packaging, or using an IDE).
For your convenience, ./configure even prints the direct CMake invocation!"""
