I have since retired CMake and made my own build system which  
generates Makefiles (so effectively I am using Make, but with majority  
of the Makefiles being auto-generated as needed).

I can’t emphasize how much I love this system as I practically never  
need to do anything besides adding/removing files/folders,  
occasionally add some very light-weight “project files” — but this is  
my system made for me, and I went through many iterations to find my  
dream setup, so for most I would just echo Gerd’s advice of going with

I personally use http://github.com/sorbits/CxxTest (my fork) — I did a  
“unix runner” so that it is silent unless there is an error, and if  
there is an error, the runner exists with a non-zero exit code.

This works great with Makefiles (so rake as well, I assume). But while  
it can be used with Objective-C, it probably mostly is for C++ (e.g.  
you would need to write traits to pretty print the Objective-C objects  
used in assertions).

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help…
