Sorry, I don't see what's your point is here.

cmake would work both ways.  It can produce Makefiles and MSVC projects
(nmake or DSW/DSP/SLN/vcproj).   

My point was simply, that if GRASS were to use cmake instead of
configure/make most part of making that happen would be on the build
system and not on the codebase itself.
