Aldrin Piri commented on MINIFI-34:
-----------------------------------

If transition to CMake occurs, might be good to consider the use of 
ExternalProject_Add 
(https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.0/module/ExternalProject.html) which would 
allow us to download source dependencies at build and streamline our codebase 
of third party inclusions

> Given the need to run on varied and disparate environments, a build procedure 
> is imperative in ensuring consistent project compilation and in assisting 
> folks in contributing.  There are a few tools that go beyond a Makefile to 
> aid in this process.  Among these are Autotools, CMake, and Scons
> Key things to keep in mind are the need to support deployment and development 
> in Windows, Linux and OS X.  This likely precludes Autotools without 
> significant effort to work in Windows environments.
