I deactivated cmake and installed cmake-devel as test on 10.5 intel
64bit, 10.7, 10.11

Build when file on all systems. I think the best test is using it during
more upgrades... I don't remember off-hand which ports use to test.
I hope that w e don't get red-herrings of failures on other packages due
to that.

At a first glance I don't understand the issue, it looks like
compiler/linker gets confused. If you want... we can try to tinker on it.
