cmake portgroup: out of source build option, possibly by default

Many of the ports that use the cmake portgroup manually do an out-of-source build. It would be nice if the cmake portgroup could do this on its own, possibly with a tbool option like "cmake.use_out_of_source_build" so that individual ports could opt-in.
Since so many of the ports using this portgroup do this, and out-of-source builds are a recommended practice, it might make sense to eventually make this option on by default. But all existing cmake portgroup ports would have to be tested to ensure they work with it on.
