The issue being that if a port's configure checks for the build type (e.g., {{{
if(${CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE} STREQUAL "Release") then
and so forth, and if "MacPorts" is not in BUILD_TYPEs list -- no matter whether 
it has settings available for use by CMake already --, then cmake errors out. 
See, e.g., <
 >. Yes, I know I can always add "MacPorts" to the list and/or tweak the 
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE in the portfile to be something acceptable. Again: That takes 
(a little) work and testing /debugging to make sure it's correct. It also 
removes some of the point of updating to cmake 1.1 PG: to simplify Portfiles 
and add MP-specific options for building. Although the cmake 1.0 PG works out 
of the for my ports (per design), I will update those ports that don't check 
for the BUILD_TYPE to the 1.1 PG as I find time. I'm not sure what I'll do with 
my ports that do check the BUILD_TYPE. - MLD
