Ha ha, yeah that was the original source of my amusement/bemusement. I'd 
noticed with 0.20 that Gordon and co had applied a patch that I'd raised 
back in 0.12 to get it working on Ubuntu. There was a bit of irony 
around the proposal to move to cmake when we'd just got the automake 
build "just working" :-) though I can see why it might be a good move.

I think some of the recent proposals around pushing the "automake 
*really* is deprecated please use cmake and report any issues" agenda 
seem to be a good middle ground. I think a couple of releases to give 
users a chance to shout seems fair warning.

I'm kind of glad I wasn't the only one seeing Ubuntu weirdness.

I'll have a play with cmake myself when I get a moment.
