Any extra dependency that's needed for a piece of software
to be installed decreases its attractiveness to potential
users and (very important to hwloc) integrators.
The benefit to sysadmins such as myself of packages
using autotools is that they should work with whatever
the system has already and not require another package
to be installed.
Whenever we come across a piece of software we need to
install here that uses CMake there's a collective sigh
of "oh no, not again"..
Think of using autotools as a way of increasing your
karma by taking a little bit more pain in return for
decreasing a whole lot more sysadmins pain.. ;-)
