This might be the reason, yes.

In the long run we will probably move to Meson as a build system,
which has the ability to auto-generate support files for CMake.

This is correct: CMake is not maintained by us.  If you can provide
small and simple patches we will gladly apply them.  However, if you
look into FreeType's bug tracker, there are already a bunch of patches
and/or problem reports w.r.t. CMake – none of us is an expert here,
and we simply don't know for sure how to solve it in the best way.
