Well, I have to clarify here. I don't plan to remove support (that is  
the extras/buildsystem/cmake directory). I do plan to stop using cmake  
for the Mac OS X Framework as there will always be a lag and breakages.

Note, there were some nice improvments to our autotools buildsystem  
lately, yet cmake is still way faster than libtool/autotools  
combinaison for most operations.
