CMake originally had an FLTK GUI it was dropped for the Qt one.  :) 
This happened around the time Qt changed licenses.  I am not that 
interested in dropping Qt for something else at this point.  Computers 
have big disks/memory so the bloat does not bother me that much.  There 
are folks maintaining the Qt cmake-gui and there seems to be enough Qt 
knowledge around to keep that going.
