I find it odd to talk about how one can't compiile packages oneself when
they use autoconf.

Is this really about accomodating windows without using cygwin?  I have
found that autoconf/automake/libtool is really quite workable.

Does cmake support

   building in an objdir, with a read-only srcdir


   the equivalent of 'make dist' and 'make distcheck'

   building on a system not previously known to the build system, as
   long as feature tests are doable
