cmake is often still broken when it comes to cross-compiling (and even
native compiles) and library searches.  many of its modules do stupid
things like check to see if libs can be found in /usr/lib and /usr/lib64
instead of doing link tests.  the FindZLIB module still exhibits these
and that branch is using that module.

conversely, autotools has no such insanity.

glancing at the branch:
 - CMakeLists.txt/*.cmake have inconsistent indentation (tab-vs-spaces)
 - CMakeLists.txt/*.cmake should have no trailing whitespace
 - DEVELOPER_BUILD should not default to "on"
 - `git describe` should not be run when DEVELOPER_BUILD is off
 - CCACHE_VERSION fallback should not be "unknown" but the release version
 - USE_OWN_LIBZ would prob be better named like "USE_SYSTEM_LIBZ"
