Perform the CTest Configure Step as a Dashboard Client.

ctest_configure([BUILD <build-dir>] [SOURCE <source-dir>] [APPEND]
                [OPTIONS <options>] [RETURN_VALUE <result-var>] [QUIET])

Configure the project build tree and record results in Configure.xml for submission with the ctest_submit() command.

The options are:

BUILD <build-dir>
Specify the top-level build directory. If not given, the CTEST_BINARY_DIRECTORY variable is used.
SOURCE <source-dir>
Specify the source directory. If not given, the CTEST_SOURCE_DIRECTORY variable is used.
Mark results for append to those previously submitted to a dashboard server since the last ctest_start() call. Append semantics are defined by the dashboard server in use.
OPTIONS <options>
Specify command-line arguments to pass to the configuration tool.
RETURN_VALUE <result-var>
Store in the <result-var> variable the return value of the native configuration tool.
Suppress any CTest-specific non-error messages that would have otherwise been printed to the console. Output from the underlying configure command is not affected.
