Also, does CMake support make distcheck yet ? As a downstream

CMake doesn't "support" it by default, but I have there custom
named "dist", "distcheck" and "disttest", the same as "check". Note
that the 'dist*' targets create the tarball from a git clone first,
thus it won't work with the tarball sources. It didn't work well with
the autotools too, I think, where you better build the sources and
'make check' only.

I guess it is too late to talk about this but what problems did
autotools had with make distcheck ? I regularly used it when
contributing patches to evo/eds and still do when preparing patches for
any autotooled package.
