 At that time, cmake was not only weird to use (just as it is now),
it also had obscure dependencies such as xmlrpc which was needed if
you wanted t make cmake use the system libs - at that time it needed
all of the system libs, or else it would use its own versions for
all of them.

 Also, at that time the only thing in BLFS which required cmake was
kde4.  Personally, I've only recently started to use cmake in my
normal builds (for graphite2).
