I can vouch however. I have almost exclusively been building with
cmake and it has worked like a charm! :) there may be some small
problems with it, but I have not noticed any. In fact we recently just
got a patch in for kdeartwork from Fat-Zer, so there is still active
progress on it.

Well the how to build page should provide good guidance. The
section on cmake should be accurate, just make sure to double check
your paths. It is key to keep everything together, so I suggest using
our standard /opt/trinity as install prefix.

Excited for the release,
