First off, many thanks for share your experience with the list.

Studying the cmake a little, I found that it is remarkably simpler than Autotools, at least for my small projects.

However I would like to stress a point about the source packages.
The Autotools suite produces source packages from which every user can compile the code without having to install Autotools itself. Essentially when one download the sources tarball, the configure script needs only the shell to produce the Makefile(s).

It seems to me that a cmake-generated source base instead would require cmake to produce a suitable Makefile and do the build. Really, the cmake sources contains a quite large bootstrap script just in case the system doesn't have a working cmake around. Now, whilst this could be probably is a minor point on modern distributions, because I hope cmake is available as binary package, do you think that this could weaken the GR build system ?
