This seems related:


CMake just does not know enough about clang-cl and how to invoke it. So far 
CMake support for clang-cl requires the VS toolchain. 


It probably needs to get a new (set of) files in Modules/Platform or 
Modules/Compiler. If such files can be written, you can host them elsewhere 
until they are in cmake upstream (and you depend on the version they ship

Indeed. I recommend teaching cmake what you need it to know instead.
