Hi everyone,

Al has given me write access to the repository to do a bit of hacking on
the concept of getting Gnucap to build with CMake. My work so far has
been pushed to a branch called 'cmake' and is still very much

A brief rant about CMake: it's a cross-platform Makefile generator.
CMake tramples over the build files and creates build instructions for a
variety of build systems, including Make, NMake, and several IDE project
files (including Visual Studio). The hope is that we get to support
several systems without rewriting the build system.

Current status of the branch:
 - A few checks are performed, but not put into 'config.h'
 - Parts of the program can be built (apps/ is totally missing)
 - Partially implemented patchlev.h with version info
 - Due to CMake limitations, temporarily rename the gnucap executable to
'gnucapui' (this DEFINITELY will be fixed)
 - And in other words, WIP :)
 - Almost coexists with autotools (when I fix patchlev.h)

I'm looking for someone to help me understand how stuff in apps/ is
built (I can't seem to understand from The branch is not
ready for testing (unless you're ready to be disappointed).
