the patch could make good use of some more comments, especially a main one 
which says what KAUTH_BACKEND is about and how it is supposed to be used.

It would be good if it would show up in the cache, so it is easier to modify 
it afterwards.

If you say cmake -DFOO=foo, FOO will end up (hidden) in the cache.
If you have then additionally 
set(FOO bar CACHE STRING "This is foo")
in the cmake file, this will not override the value given at the command line, 
but FOO will be visible and have documentation in the cache.
So you should do that.
