Well.. i don't want it because i don't really have enough knowledge about
c/c++,cmake,automake etc.. to be competent enough.
Also the mix from automake/cmake seems to be the biggest to not
remove/rewrite the eclasses from ground up.
Maybe we should start with a clean cmake-only overlay to get things
streamlined? It might take some time to get everything in there, but seems
to be the only clean solution.

I'm on amdfam10.

BTW it also seems that there are problems detecting the correct qt-path
when qt4 is installed (just tried installing sopcast, to watch the
handball-em final, it's not being broadcasted in germany;( ).
