Thanks Geert.

What was your impression of CMAKE?

I wonder how it will do using gnu gcc on Windows?

On linux, I got it to link debug libraries the other night, but the -g
option was not passed to the linker, so there was no symbols in the image.

It would be nice for somebody to complete all this work, (if CMAKE is
really the answer.)

My impression is that it could be the answer, but I am finding myself
suffering through documentation which is not as detailed as it should
be for things like "debug" and "release" builds, etc.

Perhaps studying the KDE CMakeFile.lst or another elaborate example
might help, but that is starting to feel like swimming upstream.
