[mapguide-internals] MapGuide open source builds - Linux & Cmake

Building MapGuide in Linux is just painful right now, the last time I was
able to build MapGuide without major issues was when the trunk was in
pre-2.0 revision. 

Even then, you had to get all the build steps correct without fail, or bad
things may (and do) happen.

I'm all for improvements to the build system on the linux side (at least).
