I ran from-scratch CMake and autotools builds of the current Darcs head
on my Cygwin system with basic wall-clock timing (the "time" command
in bash).  Take this with a grain of salt, YMMV, etc. etc.

cmake "cmake /opt/chicken/darcs": 1m23s
cmake "make": 9m10s
cmake "make install": 0m15s
cmake total: 10m48s

autotools "": 0m32s
autotools "./configure": 3m8s
autotools "make BOOTSTRAP_PATH=/usr/local/bin": 11m11s
autotools "make install": 0m49s
autotools total:  15m40s

So CMake is very much the winner, probably because ./configure is doing
unnecessary tests.

Mos Eisley spaceport.  You will never           John Cowan
see a more wretched hive of scum and            address@hidden
villainy -- unless you watch the      
Jerry Springer Show.
