In March 2006, the CMake program beat out several competitors and was selected to be the build system for KDE 4, replacing the autotools-based system that KDE had used from the beginning.
A introduction to CMake page is available on the KDE Community Wiki.
Basically, instead of running
make , then configure,
then Make, we simply run CMake and then Make.
kdesrc-build has support for CMake. A few features of kdesrc-build were really features of the underlying buildsystem, including configure-flags and do-not-compile. When equivalent features are available, they are provided. For instance, the equivalent to the configure-flags option is cmake-options, and the do-not-compile option is also supported for CMake as of kdesrc-build version 1.6.3.
