This heavily depends on the target. Modern CMake target convey compile time
information as well like compile flags, include directory etc...

Can't you re-order the cmake generation order of your projects?
If you [ever] have the graph dependency of your projects you may
topologically sort them in order to avoid this issue and superbuild them in
appropriate order.

I don't think so.

But the build compile line options used to generate build system files are
computed during CMake configuration/generation step.
So I don't think what you ask is possible.
