Actually writing cmake rules are realy simple, because I developed macros to 
simplify the process, is a simple copy/paste procedure. Most of time is 
consumed developing check procedures.

Manually porting is preffered, because resulted files are very clean, 
predictible and easily debugable, with no useless dependencies.
