You mean the cmake version required for KDE 4.0 ?
Although currently I don't see the need to require something newer than 2.4.5, 
problems may appear anytime unexpectedly.

Especially there might be problems on platfoms != Linux, they are not very 
widely used for KDE4 yet, so IMO we can't fix the cmake version for *all* 
supported platforms yet.
