I am far from an expert on this since I've only ever added one or two of
these IIRC. But as far as I remember, for most purposes, that's all you
need. Add a source file, add an expected file and add the source file to
the CMakeLists.txt (along with any additional CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS/LDFLAGS)...
Of course, if you need anything custom, there are likely examples in the
test suite that you can use for guidance.
Also, this may be of some help:
