One additional observation about cmake.  The generated makefile leans very heavily on the cmake utilities to do the build, so it does not look like it would be feasible to use cmake to generate the files and then just check them into the build for anybody who does not want to install cmake.  cmake is a hard dependency.

All -

I just committed a CMake starter file to the repository. There is only
one file you need to build with CMake. Currently CMake only builds the
rexxapi shared library (I had to start somewhere).

To get started:

1. Download and install CMake. If you do this on Linux try to use the
CMake that comes with your distribution. On Windows go to and download the Windows install file.
2. Run cmake ./ from the ooRexx svn trunk. Ignore the warning messages
as I will be fixing those later and they do not impact building the
rexxapi shared library.
3. Run make on Linux or nmake on Windows (from the trunk as well).

The rexxapi shared library (DLL) will be placed in the CMakeFiles/bin
subdirectory if the build is successful.

Please let me know if you have any problems.
