enable_language(CUDA) and long command lines on windows

JR Cary

Regarding the previous email, below....

The method of library construction is to first create an
object library with

add_library(${libname}obj OBJECT ${${LIBNAME}_SOURCES}
${${LIBNAME}_CUDASRCS})

then to create the actual library with

add_library(${libname} $<TARGET_OBJECTS:${libname}obj>)

and I have tried setting:

set_target_properties(${libname} PROPERTIES LINKER_LANGUAGE CXX)

Thx....John Cary
