Update CMake on the bots and switch to CIPD where available. Newer versions of CMake have some fix for default libraries on Windows/ARM64. (Not sure exactly what version, but the latest CMake does seem to work.) While trying to update the others, it turns out my workstation no longer makes CMake builds compatible with the builders. It's also tedious that updating CMake requires making builds myself. Fortunately, Chrome infra is maintains some packages of third-party software in CIPD. However, they don't make Windows CMake builds (filed https://crbug.com/1180257 to request them), and they're stuck on 3.13.x (blocked on https://crbug.com/1176531). So, this CL switches to CIPD for Mac/Linux, with the latest version they have available. It sticks with the old method (uploading copies of upstream's packages) for Windows and grabs the latest version. When both of the bugs above are fixed, hopefully things will be more uniform.

BoringSSL is a fork of OpenSSL that is designed to meet Google's needs.
Although BoringSSL is an open source project, it is not intended for general use, as OpenSSL is. We don't recommend that third parties depend upon it. Doing so is likely to be frustrating because there are no guarantees of API or ABI stability.
Programs ship their own copies of BoringSSL when they use it and we update everything as needed when deciding to make API changes. This allows us to mostly avoid compromises in the name of compatibility. It works for us, but it may not work for you.
BoringSSL arose because Google used OpenSSL for many years in various ways and, over time, built up a large number of patches that were maintained while tracking upstream OpenSSL. As Google's product portfolio became more complex, more copies of OpenSSL sprung up and the effort involved in maintaining all these patches in multiple places was growing steadily.
Currently BoringSSL is the SSL library in Chrome/Chromium, Android (but it's not part of the NDK) and a number of other apps/programs.
