Hi, I read on the recent github page that supporting IDE's (not just MSVC) is
high priority for Povray.

I maintain CMake build-system for Blender and have found it excellent for
MSVC/Eclipse/QtCreator/Netbeans/KDevelop (XCode works well apparently though I
don't use OSX).

This also allows you to use Ninja (rather then gnu-make) which can give very
fast builds.


While the syntax of the CMake is a little strange, overall the build system
works very well in my experience, other projects such as LLVM/Clang, BRL-CAD,
OpenImageIO, OpenShadingLanguage - are using CMake too.

Is it worth me getting CMake setup for Povray? - if you guys are not interested
I would rather not spend time on it.
