cmake may well be better and all that but for users who are not programmers the suppression of the nmake build system will be close to a nightmare. Again, looks like professional developers are not very sensitive to the needs of the common man. We are used to quickly build the tools when a new release appears and just go on with the work as usual. This will add a whole new level of complexity which most will not be willing to address because they are too busy with their normal work.
A welcome alternative, of course, would be to also have a release of binaries of the tools, as happens with ImageMagick and many others.
It sounds like there is a need/opportunity for someone to provide paid support for windows users :-)
