Added a lot of commentary into CMakeList.

This is just that I added a lot of comments to each new command in the CMakeList
file, because if I ever have to re-use this obscure and infrequently used skill,
I'll have a record written in my own words.

# Packages are libraries that provide definitions for how to compile

# target is provided, or CMake will complain that the target hasn't been found.
