Hi Sebastian,

ALWAYS is a strong wording. There is nothing in CMake to prevent you from doing an in-source build. The choice of doing in-source or out-of-source build is completely up to you.

I usually build OSG in-source because I prefer to have the auto generated header files in the same folder as the rest of the osg headers. (If you do an out-of-source build your auto generated header files will end up in the build directory.)
