Not exactly what we're talking about, but I just felt that needed to mention

curl still builds fine on legacy unix systems from the *90s* if you just use
the configure build option instead. The oldest Ubuntu installs you can find
are also still able to build curl using that.

For legacy systems, the autotools build system might be the appropriate

For the lowest acceptable cmake version discussion, I leave it to those with
the knowledge to speak.
