Help: Factor out cmake-generator-expressions manual page

Generator expressions are supported in many places and are a distinct
concept worthy of their own manual page.  The old builtin documentation
was previously represented by preprocessor macros to generate it into
each place that supports them.  Factor out the duplicate content into a
dedicated cmake-generator-expressions manual page and reference it from
each original location.

Generator Expressions
=====================
Generator expressions are evaluated during build
system generation to produce information specific to each build
configuration. Valid expressions are:
::
$<0:...> = empty string (ignores "...")
$<1:...> = content of "..."
$<CONFIG:cfg> = '1' if config is "cfg", else '0'
$<CONFIGURATION> = configuration name
$<BOOL:...> = '1' if the '...' is true, else '0'
$<STREQUAL:a,b> = '1' if a is STREQUAL b, else '0'
$<ANGLE-R> = A literal '>'. Used to compare strings which contain a '>' for example.
$<COMMA> = A literal ','. Used to compare strings which contain a ',' for example.
$<SEMICOLON> = A literal ';'. Used to prevent list expansion on an argument with ';'.
$<JOIN:list,...> = joins the list with the content of "..."
$<TARGET_NAME:...> = Marks ... as being the name of a target. This is required if exporting targets to multiple dependent export sets. The '...' must be a literal name of a target- it may not contain generator expressions.
$<INSTALL_INTERFACE:...> = content of "..." when the property is exported using install(EXPORT), and empty otherwise.
$<BUILD_INTERFACE:...> = content of "..." when the property is exported using export(), or when the target is used by another target in the same buildsystem. Expands to the empty string otherwise.
