 Sorry I did not put much context to explain why I reopened the discussion.
 I was updating the geos version from 3.5 to 3.6 in the orfeo toolbox
 superbuild which compiles geos using cmake.

 I was able to patch & fix the issue by just adding the cmake macro
 GenerateSourceGroups to the geos source tree:


 geos 3.6.1 compiles with cmake without error now. Let me know if there is
 something I can contribute upstream to improve the support of cmake.
