You should specify ALL sources files to CMake

but you may use FILE(GLOB SRCFILES <glob expr>) to "generate" source file list.



You may fast-read the CMake documentation too :))
Here, http://www.cmake.org/HTML/Documentation.html

A fast read may gives you a idea of what's possible to do.
Then you may come back later for time to time thorough reading
of each CMake macro when you need them.
