No, I'm making a specific response to a specific statement and
therefore discarded all the other stuff on which I'm not commenting.

Since when has appropriate trimming been a source of confusion?

"configure" scripts and autotools are basically a unix only solution.

CMake overcomes that because CMake assumes only a C/C++ compiler in
your environment and nothing else.  (And you need a C/C++ compiler to
build the CMake-based project from source anyway, so it's imposing no
additional dependencies.)
