I have a collection of interdependent CMake projects (lots of legacy code) that I want to convert to using CMake targets for linking. The code is built in such a way that all projects run cmake generation, then all projects build, then all projects link.
I would like to export a CMake target from one of the projects and link to it in another, but the issue is the project I am exporting from runs its cmake generation AFTER the project I am linking the target in. This causes "find_package" to fail because the target has not been exported yet, but realistically the exported target is not needed until link-time. Is there a way to delay "find_package" to not look for the package until link-time? At link-time the package will have been exported already and if "find_package" was not called until then, it would be found successfully and the target could be pulled in and linked to. Thanks, Tim
