The CMake package contains a modern toolset used for generating Makefiles. It is a successor of the auto-generated configure script and aims to be platform- and compiler-independent. A significant user of CMake is KDE since version 4.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.8 platform.

If Qt4 and Qt5 are installed in
/opt, use source
setqt4 or source
setqt5 to choose which one will be used to build
the Qt-based GUI.
Install CMake by running the following commands:
./bootstrap --prefix=/usr \ --system-libs \ --mandir=/share/man \ --no-system-jsoncpp \ --docdir=/share/doc/cmake-3.4.0 && make
To test the results, issue: bin/ctest
<N> is an integer between 1
and the number of system cores. For some systems, it may be
necessary to run the tests only for Qt4 using source setq4, then export CXXFLAGS="-std=c++11"
before the ./bootstrap
...) command. If used, be sure to unset CXXFLAGS after the tests.
One of the problematic tests relates to the test procedures finding
the correct Qt files. Eight of 447 tests are known to fail under
some circumstances related to Gtk+2 and c++ standards.

switch removes the JSON-C++
library from the list of system libraries. A bundled version of
that library is used instead.
