After the chat with zwabbit yesterday i feared exactly this will happen.
I think we have two ways to add cmake to RosBE.
1. Let the Installer load the setup and run it silently in the background.
2. Bundle a minimal Version.
I dont really like the idea to make users be forced to load cmake from
an external link and install it afterwards. So lets choose between these
two ways. I agree, some ppl have a cmake version already installed, but
this does not stop us to provide it for the rest in one or another way.
