      Description

      Goal: Extend Apache Thrift's make cross approach to the build system.

      Due to growing the field of operating system support, a proper executable
      and library detection mechanism running on as much platforms as possible
      becomes required. The other aspect is simplify the release process and
      package generation process.

      As nice side benefit of CMake is the generation of development environment
      specific solution files(VisualStudio, Eclipse, Xcode, etc. ). => No solution files within source tree.

      We are already building Apache Thrift with CMake for Linux-ARM, Linux-x86, Windows CE and Windows.

      We are in preparation phase for a pull request here:
