I have two versions of cmake on my system and they error off in 
different, but interesting, ways.  I may try to debug cmake someday 
and figure out its parameters  but right now I just want something 
that works out of the box. 

Happily after an extensive search I found the answer in an old post. 
make -f Makefile.cvs
followed by ./configure, make etc.

The compile proceeds as I write.  

Perhaps the less complex technique described above should also be  
listed  in the wiki, for the cmake-challenged like me. The end result 
is a compile and an install, which is all I want.

Thanks to all who replied.
