It allows the compilation with capabilities (that's what I use), but right now

Does it really make sense to add this? If so, I can do so tomorrow.

I think it'd make sense to support them.

(It should probably also support making Debian packages, RPMs, OS X dmgs, etc. to at least the same extent that 
autotools does, as well as supporting making Windows NSIS packages.)
IMO it does not have to support Debian packages.
The best practice (and Debian's policy) is calling CMake from
debian/rules, not the other way around.
