Cmake is no make program but just another cryptic way of doing
things the outdated way. When it was written first, the Schily makefile
system did already exist for 8 years.
Cmake is just an autoconf replacement - not a new program
like David Korn's "nmake". Cmake is no make program but a makefile
generator - you still need a working make program in order
Cmake creates extremely cryptic makefiles, that are hard to debug.
Cmake does not create a multi platform build environment,
so it is the same fetch - unpack - configure - compile - install - throw away idea as vanilla autoconf.
I see no advantage before the Schily makefile system.

I wonder why some people wrote programs like "gmake" although smake
existed for years already...smake is highly portable (more portable
than gmake) and smake is definitely needed for some of the supported
platforms where gmake is too buggy.
BTW: I recommend to use the official and well maintained cdrtools
instead of the questionable fork that is unmaintained since more
than two years and that is based on an extremely outdated cdrtools
