Did you tried my CMake example for the JSC executable? You can find it at
I think that it show the CMake VisualStudio integration very good: You can
even "compile" one of the generator script (e.g. for the hashtables) and
all files with dependencies will rebuild too.

Maybe you can tell me what is missing in the generated vsproj, so I can
look at it and improve the CMakeLists.txt?
