"configure" is just a configure-like wrapper script for cmake.

I.e. you use "--<option>=<value>" instead of "-D<VARIABLE>=<value>"
to tell what kind of settings cmake should use.  That wrapper script
exposes only limited set of those options and provides help for
them, so it's nicer to use than calling cmake directly.

On Unix, make is used to run the build after cmake has created
the required makefiles.

"-j8" argument tells make to run 8 parallel compiler instances.
That makes sense only if your machine has 8 cores...
