I just had a quick look and from a first glance there are various errors
because of un-implemented functions. Some are probably unproblematic
(like a missing source_group implementation), others might produce real
problems. For example configure_file is not supported, also
set_source_files_properties and I've also seen at least 1 macro not
being found. 

While I can't pin-point the error to any of those specifically they
might be causing the problem. In particular its completely unclear why
cmake-parser generates such an enourmous amount of repetitions in the
list of source files for the Camera-file.

Unfortunately the cmake source code is not exactly easy to read or
follow, so I doubt anybody will be able to help you on this short-term.
Hence all I can suggest is to attach this project to a bugreport.
