As you are aware, my CMake build in Ports contains the necessary
patches.  We (Cygwin package managers) need WIN32 to be undefined for
software to build in a *NIX/X11 mode on Cygwin, and we are not concerned
with backwards compatibility with what we perceive to be incorrect
behaviour.  Without these changes, many of us will still need to rely on
Ports' CMake, continuing the conflicts between Ports and the distro
which I am trying to eliminate.

Secondly, Qt4 has been available for some time, so cmake-gui can now be
provided.  Due to the substantial additional dependencies of Qt, this
should be a separate binary package; my .cygport shows how this can be

My patches for 2.8.2 are available here:;a=tree;f=devel/cmake

Regardless of the current upstream state, I must ask you to include
these patches for our distribution so that your cmake packages will be
useful to us in the meantime, until we can find a mutually agreeable
