    Prefer CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM over CMAKE_BUILD_TOOL (#14548) · 4ac75fdf

    Historically these were both added for the Makefile and Visual Studio
    generators, respectively.  Later the VS generators started using the
    CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM cache entry to find the IDE build tool, and the
    CMAKE_BUILD_TOOL was simply set as an alias.
    Fix the documentation to explain that CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is the modern
    variable and that CMAKE_BUILD_TOOL is the compatibility alias, not the
    other way around.  Replace uses of CMAKE_BUILD_TOOL with
    CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM in CMake-provided modules.  Nothing needs to lookup
    CMAKE_BUILD_TOOL in the cache, so simply set it as a normal variable.
