Defining build logic for a large software package in multiple software development environments entails a large up-front implementation cost and an ongoing maintenance burden. CMake is an open source cross-platform build tool that allows developers to define relatively abstract build logic that is automatically translated into a variety of build system formats, reducing the burden of supporting multiple development environments. BRL-CADs integration of TclTk as a sub-build motivated the development of TclTk build logic compatible with BRL-CAD s new CMake logic. This report presents a new CMake based build system for TclTk and a number of popular TclTk extensions.
