Help: Add section heading for configure presets in cmake-presets(7)

Cross-reference it from the main `configurePresets` field.
This removes an extra layer of indentation and makes the
section linkable.

Configure Preset
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Each entry of the ``configurePresets`` array is a JSON object
that may contain the following fields:
``name``
``name``
A required string representing the machine-friendly name of the preset.
This identifier is used in the ``--preset`` argument. There must not be
two presets in the union of ``CMakePresets.json`` and
``CMakeUserPresets.json`` in the same directory with the same name.

``hidden``
``hidden``
An optional boolean specifying whether or not a preset should be hidden.
If a preset is hidden, it cannot be used in the ``--preset=`` argument,
will not show up in the :manual:`CMake GUI <cmake-gui(1)>`, and does not
have to have a valid ``generator`` or ``binaryDir``, even from
inheritance. ``hidden`` presets are intended to be used as a base for
other presets to inherit via the ``inherits`` field.

``inherits``
``inherits``
An optional array of strings representing the names of presets to inherit
from. The preset will inherit all of the fields from the ``inherits``
presets by default (except ``name``, ``hidden``, ``inherits``,
``description``, and ``displayName``), but can override them as
desired. If multiple ``inherits`` presets provide conflicting values for
the same field, the earlier preset in the ``inherits`` list will be
preferred. Presets in ``CMakePresets.json`` may not inherit from presets
in ``CMakeUserPresets.json``.

``vendor``
``vendor``
An optional map containing vendor-specific information. CMake does not
interpret the contents of this field except to verify that it is a map
if it does exist. However, it should follow the same conventions as the
root-level ``vendor`` field. If vendors use their own per-preset
``vendor`` field, they should implement inheritance in a sensible manner
when appropriate.

Note that for Visual Studio generators, unlike in the command line ``-G``

``"external"``
``"external"``
Do not set the value, even if the generator supports it. This is
useful if, for example, a preset uses the Ninja generator, and an IDE
knows how to set up the Visual C++ environment from the
``architecture`` and ``toolset`` fields. In that case, CMake will
ignore the field, but the IDE can use them to set up the environment
before invoking CMake.

``binaryDir``
``binaryDir``
An optional string representing the path to the output binary directory.
This field supports `macro expansion`_. If a relative path is specified,
it is calculated relative to the source directory. If ``binaryDir`` is not
specified, it must be inherited from the ``inherits`` preset (unless this

``cmakeExecutable``
``cmakeExecutable``
An optional string representing the path to the CMake executable to use
for this preset. This is reserved for use by IDEs, and is not used by
CMake itself. IDEs that use this field should expand any macros in it.

An optional map of cache variables. The key is the variable name (which
may not be an empty string), and the value is either ``null``, a boolean
(which is equivalent to a value of ``"TRUE"`` or ``"FALSE"`` and a type
of ``BOOL``), a string representing the value of the variable (which

union define the same variable, the standard rules of ``inherits`` are
applied. Setting a variable to ``null`` causes it to not be set, even if
a value was inherited from another preset.

regardless of whether or not a value was given to it by the process's

variables in this map may reference each other, and may be listed in any
order, as long as such references do not cause a cycle (for example,
if ``ENV_1`` is ``$env{ENV_2}``, ``ENV_2`` may not be ``$env{ENV_1}``.)
