This is simply a CMake variable - so your build script can pass in ON or 
OFF as you want.

I installed wine and in fact I can now run the exe tests under linux. But I'm still not sure if they are automatically run during build (both linux and MXE). Where will the test results go? There is nothing in build.log or winbuild.log or stdout.

Tests are NOT automatically run when doing a build - and I'd find this 
extremely annoying when I'm working on a feature, TBH.
