This is objectively not true.

I hate autotools as much as the next guy, but I don't think you're going
to supplant it, just because it embodies 20 years of deployment
experience, experience which cuts in both directions: libogg has changed
to deal with the crap that other systems do just as much as
distributions, etc., have changed to deal with the crap that libogg does.
CMake was presented as a solution to one particular problem: the fact
that MSVC requires new project files in an incompatible format every
time they release a new version. Let's start with solving just that
problem, and see how that works out.
