No. Qt does not build with CMake and you will not need perl to configure Qt

1. Unpack the zip folder where you want to build and use it.
2. Open a Visual Studio 2010 x64 command prompt
3. cd to the place you unpacked Qt
4. Execute the configure.exe
5. Execute nmake.exe

Expect nmake.exe to take over 1 hour even on 12 threaded processors with SSDs.
