This is not entirely correct.

In order to build CMake you need, besides a C++11 compiler, some "make"
tool, which can be GNU Make but could also be Ninja or some other make
tool (possibly the one coming with Visual Studio).
And one of these you will need anyway (as generator) if your wish to
build Boost with CMake.

The "bunch of development libraries" that CMake requires for building
(curl, expat, zlib ...) can be used from the OS, but by default CMake
uses the ones it brings itself.

Therefore, building (and installing) CMake locally without the need for
root access should be possible without any problem.
