ENH: improve cmake/ParaView config handling

Mark OLESEN requested to merge config-improve-cmake-paraview-handling into master

Infrastructure for handling user-specfied installation paths for cmake-based code

  • the wmake/scripts/wmake.cmake-args handler traps -prefix=??? options and exports them as CMAKE_INSTALL_PATH, which can be used by cmake.
  • the make sentinel file now tracks a variety of parameters (previously just ParaView_DIR and VTK_DIR)
  • support plugin builds without predefining a PV_PLUG_PATH environment. Try harder to resolve the paraview-api value if the first attempt fails.
  • Unbundle the cmake configuration from the paraview configuration file. Use the have_cmake wmake/script to access during build only (avoids affecting the PATH).
