There has been a new release of the official cmake 1.6.1.
This is a major release from 1.4.7 to 1.6.1.   Version 1.6 
includes a number of new features to help make project management 
easier. Version 1.6 includes TRY_COMPILE and TRY_RUN  which can be 
used to test for features of the compiler or system that you are on. 
The MACRO command allows repeated CMakeLists code to be encapsulated 
into a macro. If you need to perform very complex operations the 
LOAD_COMMAND command allows you to write your own CMake command 
using a C API that can be compiled and loaded into CMake as part 
of the configuration process. 

Here are the required files:

# CMake setup.hint file for cygwin setup.exe program
