as if i needed another reason to hate cmake.
so cmake no longer works if you don't have elevated privileges?
and if someone manages to create malware inside of cmake tests, does that make cmake a virus?

you only need elevated privileges in the configure or make stages if make install would have required the same privileges
so the privilege issue only applies if the user selected an installation location that required said privileges
but I honestly completely agree that rickety code that no one ever reads would be a great place to slip in something devious
