It would be interesting to compare SCons and CMake.  CMake is probably
more widely used since it's adoption by KDE but I like the fact that
SCons build scripts are lightly camouflaged Python scripts.  CMake's
syntax has so far seemed to get in the way of me figuring out what I
needed to do.

While I prefer SCons, I wouldn't be unhappy if CMake was chosen.
