Not really. Cmake provides the means to build full native Cocoa applications, and to do this it needs access to an OSX SDK.

It requires the SDK for the platform it is being built for, so on OSX10.10 needs the 10.10 SDK, on 10.9 the 10.9 SDK and so on... I guess in theory you could target an older OSX release, so use 10.9 SDK on 10.10, but as this is not needed in MacPorts, the binaries are always specific for a given OS, the system SDK is used to provide the most up to date features... 

So yes, it builds fine and provides binaries on older OSX releases. Its just a (temporary) issue with 10.10 until Xcode 6.1 is available.
