I'll have to take full responsibility for that as I alone was the
original author of our cmake scripts. I didn't concern myself with
making the names the same as I really never imagined that the linux
folks would be willing to give up their autotools. I still am not sure
they are but I am maintaining hope. Ever since that day in Prague when
I first started planning a completely different Windows build system I
have hoped that one day we could replace autotools with it. Maybe now
is the time....
