Agreed. There seems to be quite a few posts *looking for* problems with
CMake... I have not found any problems with CMake (provided I've set the
right options) and the capability of having a standard "make" along with
XCode & MSVC projects (I compile on all three platforms, though only use
Blender on Win/Mac) kind of tilts things in CMake's favour.

That is not to say Scons is bad, I find it pretty good too - just not as
easy to use with an IDE. I just don't understand the animosity there
appears to be for CMake.
