Yes, I would like to do that, but then I realized that cmake is not standard 
software on all systems (like RedHat if I remember right), so as for 
converting the basic Bacula build process to cmake, I am sort of taking a 
wait and see attitude.

On the other hand, to use cmake and the dart system for doing regression tests 
poses no problems for me -- I believe that any one who is capable of running 
the regression scripts (rather easy) could easily install cmake if it is not 
already on his machine.
