[CMake] How to generate compiler error files with CMake

We only need the error files when running the makefile on the shell as most
IDE's have a build-in handling of the errors.
When working on the shell, or with large (or distributed build systems) it
is most helpful to have an error file for each compilation or link process.
We actually are currently replacing the compiler with a shell script (using
a SET(CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=my_gcc) command) but this is quite complicated
Especially on the Windows platform, we really had to create our own little
c-app in order to parse the temporary parameter file in order to get this
I was wondering if we are the only ones that (still) love using the good old
error files or this might be an enhancement that others would like as well.

There is no easy way to do this with CMake. With makefiles, you might be
able to replace the compiler with a shell script that does this.
But, it would not work with visual studio or xcode projects.
