LOL, cross-building with cmake is a joke. While core-cmake cross-build
functionality is awesome (a toolchain file!), the people writing the
FindLibFoo stuff are ignorantly hardcoding /usr/lib, /usr/include and
friends. And worse, patches for that are generally land on the bottom of the
review pile.

And for the record, cross-build toolchains and buidsystems *are* my job and
I hate cmake with a passion.

Even if all of the above magically gets fixed, having more than 1
buildsystem for a project is a drain on resources and usually ends up with
"But it *does* work in my pet system, WONTFIX" type of replies to people who
run into issues.
