We do provide Autotools in parallel with CMake, although I have been
unable to repair Autotools for arts and a couple other modules.  If you
would like to see if you can fix Autotools for arts, etc. I would
definitely appreciate the help!

Honestly, I have had may of the same problems you mention with Autotools,
and personally feel that Autotools is a barrel of pain compared with
CMake.  I would hazard a guess that any project of this complexity will
have build system issues regardless of the underlying build file generator
in use.
