Building on Windows is great, which is why I use it, but note that the
Windows installer is 32-bit based NSIS only.  That means x64 builds
incorrectly prompt for "Program Files (x86)".   The ideal packager would be
WiX but that's a mountain to climb compared to CPack usage.

I think the distribution package targets are not policy compliant as they by
nature miss the bureaucratic paperwork usually required.

CMake presently loses out on cross-compiling as you need to install CMake
and to date is hasn't exactly got a great history of API stability.  I think
you still will not find SCons or CMake in Red Hat for example and say Ubuntu
LTS 8 is at least two major ABI breaks different.
