Need a C++ compiler, fine for KDE/QT since it's C++, it's a nono for C apps.
Complexity? Having a look at the code, they seems to be in the same "brain damaged" league as the autotools.
BSD license... erk! Won't ever contribute: "I give code, you give code", where is my dear GPL/LGPL license.
Cross compilation for apps or plumbering for creating cross compilation toolchains... nil... or well hidden.
Command line use ways worse than autotools.
Well, cmake will want me to kill myself like the autotools.
Still waiting for a new GPL/LGPL C build systems in UNIX philosophy (cf wikipedia about it)... Hu? Should write it? Sorry have other projects... back to the autotools in the mean time.
But cmake has understood very well something and we are a lot to agree: we need a more maintainable build system.
