Depends on if you care about cross-platform development or not.
CMake and Scons are both radically different approaches to
cross-platform build systems, and there's also the Bakefile  route
that the wxWidgets project uses to generate makefile, Visual Studio
project files, Borland, and other IDE project files so all target
platforms have a single build configuration file with all options. I
hear CMake can work close to the same, though I've never used it.
If you aren't working in a cross-platform environment, I don't really
think CMake is necessary, I'd look closer into using Scons as I think
it would provide a much easier to use build system for single platform
