It allows cmake to run the correct build tool. I loaded a cmake project in 
creator on Windows, and creator executed cmake for me. That populated the 
cache with:

 //Program used to build from makefiles.

So, if the makefiles cause cmake to run any part of the build, it will use 
nmake. Creator expects jom to be used. The solution is to tell cmake to use 

This also allows uniformity in how the build tool is invoked.
