   Enable additional time/memory expensive checking. Defaults to OFF.
+  Tell the build system that an IDE is being used. This in turn disables the
+  creation of certain convenience build system targets, such as the various
+  ``install-*`` and ``check-llvm-*`` targets, since IDEs don't always deal well
+  with a large number of targets. This is usually autodetected, but it can be
+  configured manually to explicitly control the generation of those targets. One
+  scenario where a manual override may be desirable is when using Visual Studio
+  2017's CMake integration, which would not be detected as an IDE otherwise.
   Add the ``-fPIC`` flag to the compiler command-line, if the compiler supports
   this flag. Some systems, like Windows, do not need this flag. Defaults to ON.
