Well, as far as I understand you don't know the filenames before running
the external command right? I think your only option then is to set the
generated flag on the source files once you have them via

set_source_files_property( ${SOURCES} PROPERTIES GENERATED TRUE )

If you know the filenames before running the custom command you can just
add the names to the OUTPUT list and cmake will know they're generated.
