Out of interest, why?

seems to be better than autotools, gives more freedom and easily allows
the sources to be built much faster than with autotools (it builds here
in ~1/3 of the time which uses autotools, still using "Unix
Makefiles"). I know it's caused mostly by not having one giant, but this way it's easier (at least for me).

With the "gives more freedom" I think of different generators, which
CMake offers quite many [1].

    Note it's for version 3.6, while the required CMake version is 3.0
