Just breaking the Cmake stuff out into a seperate thread

Based on the feedback from the AD developers about sticking with the VS
build system on Windows, what do people think about the Cmake option on linux

>From the sound of things if we go ahead with this, we are going to
keep the existing
build system for windows and adopt cmake for any other platforms

Can we add Helio's stuff to the tree and run with two build systems?

Helio, the existing full build with all the embedded thirdparty stuff
works currently?

If it does and we don't have to worry about the issues like the db 4.2
you mentioned
the 2.1 release could be a good opportunity to test this out as I
assume quite a
few people are going to be trying to compile 2.1 on linux

I am prepared to be a crash test dummy on this...
