+Current flaws in the curl CMake build
+=====================================
+
+ Missing features in the cmake build:
+
+ - Builds libcurl without large file support
+ - It doesn't build src/hugehelp.c which creates the --manual output
+ - Can't select which SSL library to build with, only OpenSSL
+ - Doesn't build with SCP and SFTP support (libssh2)
+ - Doesn't allow different resolver backends (no c-ares build support)
+ - No RTMP support built
+ - Doesn't allow build curl and libcurl debug enabled
+ - Doesn't allow a custom CA bundle path
+ - Doesn't allow you to disable specific protocols from the build
+ - Doesn't properly enable IPv6 support by default
+ - Doesn't find or use krb4 or GSS
+ - Rebuilds test files too eagerly, but still can't run the tests
