I guess CMake is not as powerful as bjam, and therefore requires the
libraries to be more modularized. But this is not really the fault of
CMake, since it only generates the build-environments for a variety of
existing build tools (like Visual Studio, KDevelop, eclipse, "classic"
unix make, ...), so it somehow has to limit the allowed non-modularity
to what the "weakest" of the supported build-environments supports.
