[petsc-users] status of PETSc installation via CMake?

The current source archive petsc-3.7.5.tar.gz
comes with files
- configure for Autotools based installation
- CMakeLists.txt for CMake based installation

However, the installation web page
only mentions "./configure".

So what is the status of support for CMake based installation?

The following attempt failed:
   cd petsc-3.7.5 [the unpacked source archive]
   mkdir build
   cd build
   cmake ..
   CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:4 (include):
     include could not find load file:
   -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

In-place build (which of course is disadvised)
results in the same error.
