ENH: Allow custom limit on object file path length

Some native build tools, particularly those for cross compiling, may
have a limit on the length of the full path to an object file name that
is lower than the platform otherwise supports.  This change allows the
limit to be set by the project toolchain file through the variable
CMAKE_OBJECT_PATH_MAX.
