Gentoo provides, but currently i support building on way more systems than
Gentoo. older Linux distros, OS X, Windows, etc... it is possible to get
cmake onto these, it's just a hassle for me and for the people i support.
i understand your desire to not have to maintain autoconf. but i certainly
can take care of that aspect and just send patches when necessary. you could
even have a dummy configure/Makefile that output "use cmake now" and for
people who want autotools, they'll get overwritten when generating things.
