Well, I am not going to discuss cmake vs. automake here. Suffice to say
there are some folks who aren't as big fans of cmake as you are. (And I
happen to be one of them, but that's mostly irrelevant here.)

I built the tarball with automake, and I believe most people who hack on
D-Bus exclusively use automake. I have not actively excluded anything
from the tarball, I simply typed "make dist". If the resulting tarball
does not include you cmake files, then prepare a patch that makes sure
automake includes it. The patch probably is very simple, i.e. just adds
the cmake files to EXTRA_DIST. However, this patch must come from you,
as I cannot test this and you want this to work.
