I still don't think I have enough detail to file a bug report (not sure 
exactly what they need to know about my system configuration to make it 

I did go ahead (just now) and ask the main CMake mailing list which 
files I need to look at to force a working CMake 2.6.2 bootstrap.  If I 
can fix that on my end, I expect to have enough information to file a 
bug report.

It occurred to me fairly recently that the only modules listed as 
depending on AsmPrinter in the LibDeps.txt on my end are the 
__ASMPrinter *.o files.  I take it CMake is currently configured to scan 
*.o files for dependencies to extrapolate, as well as *.a files?
