Does that imply that the proper cmake files /are/ provided everywhere else (e.g. Linux) - just not on the aforementioned platforms? What's the reasoning behind that?

(Or are they just missing in the Beta release?)

Sorry my noob question here (I use qmake myself), but from what I understand we're not talking about compiling Qt /itself/ (with cmake instead of qmake), are we?

I understood the OP that he wants to compile his /own/ application (with cmake), and now is looking for the proper "cmake include/config" files which would tell cmake where to find the proper Qt libs, what to link, get the proper linker flags etc.

Much like the "pkgconfig" files.

Or am I mistaken?
