Do you mean in its (equivalent of) configure stage? cmake was on my
shortlist too, but I decided not to commit to it because its
documentation looked a little weak unless you're prepared to buy a book
which is quite expensive, especially outside the US. Additionally, I
think the fact that it works by generating makefiles would make it share
some of the drawbacks that brings to automake.
