This was discussed when we originally designed the ENABLE_TESTING
command. The intention was that ADD_TEST should not do anything unless
ENABLE_TESTING has been called. The idea is that we don't want to have
Dart testing files show up in every build of every project ever using
CMake. It is a bug that ADD_TEST is still executing even when
ENABLE_TESTING has not been invoked. Any project that wants testing
should call ENABLE_TESTING in the topmost CMakeLists file, or in a file
that includes it.
