I don't know how Cmake translates a ${PROJECT_NAME} into '-DBUILDING_pcap'.
(and I don't really care to learn the contorted mess called Cmake).

Okay, but what does dumpcap.exe need in order for 'has_wpcap' to be TRUE?
In other words, how was dumpcap configured and compiled? Maybe it was built
with some 'HAVE_PCAP_xx' and your wpcap.dll doesn't export those?
But does other WinPcap examples work okay?

Just that Cmake's generators have "Win32" default in some of it's generator
names. From 'cmake -h':
  The following generators are available on this platform:
    Visual Studio 14 2015 [arch] = Generates Visual Studio 2015 project files.
                                   Optional [arch] can be "Win64" or "ARM".

So you want Cmake to generate .sln/.vcxproj files capable of both "Win32"
and "Win64" targets? It is probably possible.
