Hi, I tried to build it, but I'm getting a bunch of errors.

First, the "!WIN32" evaluated to 0, so the include dirs for cairo
evaluated to
"$ENV{GTK_ROOT_DIR}/include/cairo" which is just /include cairo, an
inexistent directory.

This resulted in the following error:

[...]/gal/cairo/cairo_gal.h:46:19: fatal error: cairo.h: No such file or
 #include <cairo.h>

I changed the "!WIN32" to "1" (1), but then CMake picked up my wxGTK 2.8
installation, not the correct 2.9.4 one (I have both installed in
parallel). As you can imagine, this results in a ***load of errors. I
haven't figured out how to fix this one.

Come on guys, making CMake work is not hard. This isn't autohell. Let's
get this working out-of the box.

(1) "NOT WIN32" produces the expected results.
