CMake product larger than necessary
The CMake package (as of v3.2.1) includes the CMake source, which does not seem needed. The package size could be reduced almost by a factor of 2 by removing the source.

Having the source code in the cmake binary distribution was more accidental than deliberate.
build_cmake.sh has been modified to put the source code in a different directory when building. In addition, a couple of other small fixes were made.
The resulting distribution for cmake v3_2_1 is now 60M instead of 115M.
We do not plan to replace the source code or distribution tarballs for cmake v3_2_1. Instead, this fix will be picked up when we move to a newer release of cmake.
