If so, I'd rather see cmake. I what I've read is correct, autotools on Win isn't
a very nice thing. Also, with cmake you only have a single package to install,
with autofoo it's a bit more.
As offered on this list before: I'd be willing to create a cmake config if
there is genuine interest (i.e. I'd like to have a high probability of getting
stuff accepted in the end).

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
