[cfe-dev] Heads up: Bug in CMake found when attempting 64-bit build with 32-bit clang-cl.

btw, Hans, Nico: I noticed that we are using a different triple with
`llvm37_32bit/bin/clang-cl.exe -m64` vs `llvm37_64bit/bin/clang-cl.exe`.

The `llvm37_32bit/bin/clang-cl.exe -m64` side of the diff is red; the
`llvm37_64bit/bin/clang-cl.exe` side is in green.
The primary difference seems to be:
`llvm37_32bit/bin/clang-cl.exe -m64` chooses `-triple
`llvm37_64bit/bin/clang-cl.exe` chooses `-triple

Not sure if this is intended behavior or not, but just thought I'd let you
guys know, since from what you guys were saying in IRC it sounded like
`llvm37_32bit/bin/clang-cl.exe -m64` is supposed to be equivalent to
`llvm37_64bit/bin/clang-cl.exe`. Like I said, I managed to get it building
with the settings in the OP, so the difference is not a big deal it seems.
