[Windows] Add support for code signing the final binaries.

Authored by LazyDodo (LazyDodo) on Aug 30 2016, 4:28 AM.



The option is controlled with the WITH_WINDOWS_CODESIGN option and needs:

  • Signtool must be found on the system, the standard windows sdk folders will be searched for it.
  • The path to the pfx file (WINDOWS_CODESIGN_PFX)
  • The password for the pfx , this can either be set by the WINDOWS_CODESIGN_PFX_PASSWORD variable but given that ends up in CMakeCache.txt (which might be undesirable) there is a backup option of setting the PFXPASSWORD environment variable on the system.

The only comment I have is that we might in the future generalize WINDOWS_CODESIGN to CODESIGN and then figure out by platform what this intend implies.

Also for the release process we might want to sign the .msi also but I see no pressing reason to hack cmake into allowing for that now.
