There is now one week left for everybody to get cmake >= 2.6.0.

In case you don't want to replace the cmake coming with your distribution, you 
can also install an additional version of cmake into a separate directory and 
then call it explicitely when doing the initial cmake run, e.g.:

$ /opt/cmake-2.4.6/bin/cmake ....

(you can simply unpack the binary package from the cmake.org download page 
there, it works)
