We are aware, The external dependencies build-scripts are using the autotools build for linux/mac for
this exact reason, for windows that was not an option, there we use the github hash 
0ac2ea34c8f3134148a5df4052e40f155b76f6fb which has 'somewhat' working cmake support,
still kinda wonky, but workable.
