Just curios, why cmake?  I haven't really used it mostly because the
cross-platform builds I've worked on.  I want Windows and Mac OS X users
to have to install as little as possible to make a build.  GNU make,
autoconf, and automake come built into Mac OS X and are easily
installable with MinGW or Cygwin.

I think that olsrd could probably be built using only GNU make on all
platforms.  For example, I wrote this Makefile for Pure Data libraries
which works for GNU/Linux, GNU, GNU/kFreeBSD, Mac OS X, iOS, Android,
MinGW, and Cygwin:
