I've never used CMake for that purpose.
Does CMake generate QT specific actions and build events like
running moc.exe from project level?

Anyway, if CMake can generate usable project for QGIS, then I would
stick to this option, as VC++ project maintenance for as big
project as Quantum GIS, is really pain in the ass.
