I might be teared and feathered but what would it take to maintain the CMakeLists.txt directly in git  and not of generate them from Smalltalk?

From my limited point of view it seems cmake supports targeting multiple platforms/configurations from within the CMakeLists. And when trying to build the PharoVM on FreeBSD I had a lot of trouble[1] and waited[2] a bit too much.

kind regards


[1] Trouble in the sense that the generated paths were absolute, that some CFLAGS didn't apply to the compiler used.

[2] I seem to have failed to just generate the CMakeLists.txt/* and decided to generate everything which took some time. E.g. the files not being truncated before they are written to
