I for one am not interested in 'cmakeification' of GDAL. For the MS4W
community, I build 32 and 64 bit versions, for the full stack of Apache,
PHP, MapServer, GDAL (I counted recently and it is now over 200
libraries) - and the few projects that use cmake are the troublesome
ones. (for example, MapServer switched to cmake but no one is
maintaining the mapscript parts of cmake, which means I have kept my own
makefiles alive, in order to build all of MapServer).
I am very against cmake, I have had terrible experiences. I am all for
sharing our makefiles and making life easier, than using a fancy cmake
system that is not maintained.
