As far as I remember when I did look into the problem,
the version control integration problem for out-of-source build is an
**ECLIPSE** problem
which cannot be solved on the CMake side unless you break the out of
sorce rule and generate
files in the source...
and reference.

You can have a single eclipse project using CMake if your go option 2 described
however with this option you do not use eclipse generator at all...
