How to waste time

The reason I wasted 2 sweet afternoon hours of Saturday: 1) cmake 2.8.10 has a bug which removing CMakeCache.txt does not completely remove cached values of previous execution. Attempting -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=icpc even results in an infinte loop! (seriously?)  2) intel compiler does not support override keyword.

At this point, I really want to abandon cmake. I have cumulatively spent at least (literally!) a week on figuring out why my cmake file is not working on a new system I want to deploy my stuff on. But what's an alternative?  bjam? Seriously?
