FWIW, simply for my own curiosity's sake, if someone could confirm deny whether cmake:
1. Supports the following compiler suites: GNU (that's a given, I assume), Clang, OS X native (which is variants of GNU and Clang), Absoft, PGI, Intel, Cray, HP-UX, Oracle Solaris (Linux and Solaris), Tru64, Microsoft Visual, IBM BlueGene (I think that's gcc, but am not entirely sure). (some of these matter mainly to hwloc, not necessarily OMPI)
2. Bootstrap a tarball such that an end user does not need to have cmake installed.
