The DESCRIPTION file says this:
SystemRequirements: clang (recommended)
One of the CRAN policies is "Package authors should make all reasonable
efforts to provide cross-platform portable code." cmake describes
itself as a cross-platform solution and offers Windows binaries, so does
it really make sense to limit it to Unix?
Also of concern are the export restrictions on this page:
I suspect CRAN isn't going to want to be involved with those.
