Cmake stupidity...
1/12/2017
So given this snippit:
add_dependencies(my_target jansson)
I get this error:
The dependency target "jansson" of target "my_target" does not exist.
Ok so I did 'add_directory' that, so what if I did this:
add_library(jansson)
add_dependencies(my_target jansson)
Now I get:
add_library cannot create imported target "jansson" because another target with the same name already exists.
Really? It just errored out because it didn't exist? You can't have it both ways Cmake!!!

Cmake: you get what you paid for!
