I've often heard this criticism levelled at CMake but never really
understood it. Like people think the rest of the build chain didn't
require installing anything or something.

CMake is small and simple to install on any platform. In many years
of using it I can promise you CMake never has never slowed me down or
gotten in my way. Asking our users to spend 10 seconds installing
CMake in exchange for effortlessly producing a build setup for just
about any build chain they desire seems an obvious choice.
