I don't know about generating VS project files.
I positively hate cmake, but I understand it might be needed if we ever
move to KDE4 anyway. I notice the admin/ directory is definitely not in
KDE SVN anymore.
It is, also, yet-another-external-build-dependency.
Having recently built KDE4 by hand, I don't see any advantage to cmake.
You still get a "configure" stage, a directory full of (even more)
cryptic macros, and a real pain-in-the-ass if something goes wrong. The
only feature I like about it is that it can show progress as a
percentage; not terribly relevant on a project the size of Celestia.
