I've just corresponded with Marcus Leech about adding support for openSUSE 12.1 in the build-gnuradio script, and he's said

   "The cmake hackery might be better placed in the Cmake rules in Gnu Radio itself--using yet-another special recognizer for OpenSuse.  I suggest you post to discuss-gnuradio to indicate that OpenSuse requires this rule, and perhaps someone (maybe Josh) will patch the Cmake rules appropriately."

the place to check for openSUSE 12.1 is /etc/os-release  and it contains:
VERSION = 12.1 (Asparagus)
PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 12.1 (Asparagus) (i586)"

i used the existing build-gnuradio script as an outline for building it manually.  the individual steps were quite successful.

here's the key info:

sudo zypper install cmake cppunit-devel doxygen fftw3-devel git gsl-devel libjack-devel libqt4-devel libqwtplot3d-devel libSDL-devel libusb-1_0-devel orc portaudio portaudio-devel python-cheetah python-devel python-lxml python-wxGTK python-wxWidgets-devel qwt-devel wxWidgets-devel xmlto

(add texlive-latex to the list above if you want all the gnuradio docs to build - latex install alone needs about 300MB of disk)

To enable building gr-qtgui in addition to all the rest, you have to point cmake to the location of the qwt header files:

cmake -DQWT_INCLUDE_DIRS=/usr/include/qwt5 ../

To be clear, it's only the cmake stuff that I'd prefer be handled in the Gnu Radio build process itself, rather than build-gnuradio special-casing it.  We've done distribution-specific "spooge" in the Cmake files a few times, and it seems like this might be another instance of that.

The pre-requisite support using zypper is no problem, and I already put that in that last.  But I'm waiting on opinions about the cmake flags -- whether that should be something in the gnuradio cmake files, or whether I need to special-case it in build-gnuradio.  Doing it in Gnu Radio itself means that people doing manual builds will have a seamless experience.
