Maybe add these instructions in the output?

[doriad at localhost ITK]$ ctest -D Experimental
   Site: localhost.localdomain
   Build name: Linux-c++
(use "cmake -DSITE:STRING=sitename -DBUILDNAME:STRING=buildname" to change)

or mention the file which contains the settings:

(edit "filename.ext" to change)

The problem is that instructions on ITK, etc simply say to run

ctest -D Experimental

and don't have any mention of how to configure it.
