Well, because it doesn't make the simple case simple.

        (1) Run CMake graphical configuration tool to generate makefiles/
        (2) Load project into your favorite IDE
        (3) Hit "build" in your IDE

CMake is about integrating well with the way the user develops code.
That might be makefiles, VC++ projects, XCode projects, whatever.
Having used CMake, bjam, and autotools, I've found CMake to be by far
the easiest system for *users* to get up and running with.
