CMake can generate GNU make-compatible makefiles just fine, so unless you meant
GNU Automake, that's not the issue. CMake can also generate project files for
other IDEs and support some other build-systems, all from the same sources, so
in this respect it is far superior to GNU Autohell.

How well does CMake handle cross-compiling? I recently had to compile
a few projects that didn't use autotools, and getting them to
cross-compile wasn't fun (one of those made some very wrong
assumptions about Windows as well, which didn't help either).

Exactly!! I for one definitely vote against such a change assuming my
vote counts. :)

Just chipping in with some actual information: cmake does support cross-compiling quite well. See
