It was put back for 4.9.0, but we didn't actually have that release :)

There is no intention to replace autotools with CMake. The CMake stuff is in addition to the autoconf build support, which has been there for eons, and it will continue to stay as painful as possible, as always. I will say there is some intention to replace the hand-rolled MSVC nmake scripts with CMake :), but the audience for that is predictably quite small.
