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.


One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, 
is intelligent among men, and he is in the transcendental position, 
although engaged in all sorts of activities.
