this is no option, as the module is supposed to work with both
autotools and cmake.

Remember... we are in the transition period ;-)

But I found the solution... not nice, but it works. I add a set of
definitions before the actual configure_file statement:

set(top_srcdir ${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR})
set(abs_top_srcdir ${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR})
set(top_builddir ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR})
set(abs_top_builddir ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR})

should be add a function which sets these convinience definitions?
Perhaps one could add a command like


which sets all required variables (i'm sure I forgot a couple of them,
but these are the most common ones, perhaps some more regarding
gridtype or similar) and then we can later deprecate this mthod to
force people to update the code.
