Personally I'm determinant to use CMake, mostly due to its maturity and CPack's features, but recently stumbled upon Meson http://mesonbuild.com/) build system whose goal is "to be both extremely fast, and, even more importantly, as user friendly as possible."...it also uses Ninja instead of Make as backend. Otoh, I believe that main problem with CMake is lack of quality docs - even Mastering CMake book has constantly very bad reviews.
