Ah, I finally understood that cmake4eclipse is actually a separate project, unrelated to the CDT cmake support (which, at least for me, is useless).

Well, it would be interesting to know how the macOS users configure their systems, since by default the cmake4eclipse plug-ins did not identify the cmake binary installed in /Application/

Even worse, in the Properties page -> Host OS overrides, there is no macOS tab, only Linux and Windows. :-(

In the Linux tab, browsing for the binary does not work, since the browser refuses to open the folder and the path must be configured manually to '/Applications/', which is not exactly user friendly.

After this initial hindrance, I was able to run a simple build. :-)

But it is regrettable that direct support for macOS is not yet available.
