CMake style

I agree that passing the version via the command line might be a bit
excessive. However, by moving the other defines out of the config.h, we can
only specify them for the targets that actually use them which feels like
an improvement to me. I'll keep the config file to store the version but
maybe it should be renamed to version.h to more accurately reflect its
contents now.
