[CMake] LINK_LIBRARIES() does not respect SUFFIX/PREFIX

A while ago I tried to cross-compile code for win32 with mingw from linux
and ran into the same problem with the library PREFIX and SUFFIX. Setting
the PREFIX and SUFFIX globally works great, cross-compiling now works good
for my project (and much faster than the native compile with mingw on




This problem is now solved. For anyone else facing this with
> crosscompiling here are is what I did. In the top level CMakeLists.txt I

> Some of my leqrnings;
> 1) The prefix and suffix information must and should be placed after
> declaring the project. If it is put before, then it gets overwritten

> 2) When cross-compiling, the CMAKE_C_COMPILER and CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER
> must be set *before* declaring the project. It gets *committed* when a
> project is declared and cannot be changed without deleting the build.
