Interesting analisys :)

I guess you just can't expect isfinite to necessarely be a macro.
It could be a real function too.

The autotool based version of the check actually attempts linking
to figure out:

  dnl - Look for finite and/or isfinite macros/functions
   [AC_TRY_LINK([#include <math.h>],

I suggest you do some more research on how cmake handles the case
in which a symbol may be a macro or function.
