Compiling LaTeX files into readable documents is actually a very involved process. Although CMake comes with FindLATEX.cmake, it does nothing for you other than find the commands associated with LaTeX. I like using CMake to build my LaTeX documents, but creating targets to do it is actually a pain. Thus, I've compiled a bunch of macros that help me create targets in CMake into a file I call "UseLATEX.cmake". Here are some of the things UseLATEX.cmake handles:
* Runs LaTeX multiple times to resolve links.
* Can run bibtex and makeindex to make bibliographies and/ or indexes.
* Runs configure on your latex files to replace @VARIABLE@ with the equivalent CMake variable.
* Automatically finds png and eps files and converts them to formats latex and pdflatex understand.
