I used to consider CMake as "just another build system, why not". Until
I saw its cross-compilation story. Since then, I appreciate autoconf
even more.

Speed (more precisely: parallelizability) isn't that important to me.
Usually I've got other nice things to do while Emacs compiles (i.e.
I schedule such jobs) -- although I do understand that other peoples's
workflows are different.
