CMake works nicely for out-of-tree projects.  I have an optimiser plugin that builds this way.  I'm not sure if it's fixed now, but the autoconf builds used to not install the CMake plugins, which was a problem if packagers decided to use autoconf.


P.S. Weren't we planning on removing the Make-based build system in the next few months a year ago?
