Where can I find current instructions?

Yes, but I also read (mailing list? wiki? can't remember) that CMake
was not intended to be a permanent requirement and only transitory.

Given that the input file, forward_headers.cmake, wasn't present in
the cloned repository, I don't see how the CMake command would have

Since the aforementioned file wasn't present, I was guessing that
CMake was no longer required and that the instructions were stale.

I guessed correctly on one of those counts :).
