Ok, did my appointments here and can give more input.. or.. no.. better :-)
On Saturday or Sunday i will make available my current almost ready cmakefied 
mapguide, with:
- Tests for external dependencies ( as Gabriele pointed )
- Internal dir dependencies to make possible a paralel building wihtou 
breaking the chain ( btw, at Mandriva labs i compiled with a make -j 30 in our 
icecream distributed compiler environment ).
- so'naming libraries, to have proper .so.<VERSION>
- All necessary ThirdParty tools removed except the required ones, like gd.

Some tidbits
- Some patches are needed to compile against 64, but minor ones
- Now i have FDO been tested against my cmake version. I will change the test 
to match a auto*tools current installation 
- Some different steps than the current instructions is needed to setup 
external apache. I will detail that ones.

I just not push it today because i want deliver it with trunk, my current one 
is 2.0.0 only and is better present a up-to-date experience.

If someone become curious about the compiler cluster, is all open source and 
free and if you are like me have more than one machine in network, worth a 
lot: http://en.opensuse.org/Icecream
