    cmake: Improve '-E create_symlink' edge case handling (#14713) · e0228e2b
    Brad King authored
    The logic added by commit ffc0b5e4 (Overwrite the symlink if it already
    exists, 2007-02-15) does not recognize and remove existing broken links
    before replacing them.  Improve the logic to remove any existing
    destination file or link (but not directory).  On failure, report an
    error message explaining why the existing path could not be removed or
    the new one could not be created.
    Add a RunCMake.CommandLine test to cover 'cmake -E' cases.  Start with
    test cases covering 'cmake -E create_symlink' behavior on UNIX platforms.
