You can find all the options conveniently located in
cmake/XiphosOptions.cmake to help. I keep referring back to it.

Not strictly necessary. It just massages truthiness value such as the
Yes/No, On/Off, True/False strings into boolean value. CMake should behave
pretty well if you set them without it. It's just a tiny bit safer. Like
always wrapping shell variables in quotation marks even if you set the
value and know it doesn't have a space in it. Some day it might and you
might forget.
