I'm guessing one of the dependencies is not installed or perhaps that 
some assumptions in the cmake build are unintentionally platform specific.

You should be able to get a better message if you force

Yes, well spotted, thanks for highlighting that! I've raised a JIRA:

Now that the code is all in the same tree (for both windows and linux) 
we should be able to do a much better job. I've raised a JIRA for this 
also: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5208

You certainly make a good point. AFAIK the reason for that name was the 
desire to update the store to be fully asynchronous

You are most definitely not being a pain! Pointing out the problems is 
the first step in getting them fixed. I've marked the JIRAs above as 
blockers for the next release.

I'm hoping someone volunteers to address them, but if not I'll get them 
fixed before the first RC (Justin, keep me honest!).
