The current status of CMake is that it is incomplete. It doesn't do packaging, 
it doesn't build some parts of the system like cluster, swig and probably 
others. It does what the windows project needs it to do, and beyond that nothing 
is guaranteed. At some point we need to bring cmake up to speed and _delete_ the 
automake system so people cannot continue to extend it and are forced to fix any 
remaining issues in cmake. I don't think anyone has had the time or the 
willpower to take that on to date, and the job keeps getting bigger (I'm as 
guilty as anyone of extending automake and forgetting cmake.)
