I think there is no harm in maintaining two build systems, it's just
that four is a bit much. There's always one that's forgotten, usually
the Makefile.lite or vcxproj files. I think having both CMake and
autotools has its benefits. I personally like the ease of
cross-compiling with the autotools build system, and make distcheck
seems to have no equal in CMake. The autotools suite on the other hand
can only create Makefiles.
