I Use codeblocks 12.11 with it's default compiler,
I Use CMake 2.8.11
I am trying to compile Box2D
I build ok, but there is no linker (*.a) generated
This is the first time I compile with CMake,
From what I know the step by step to build using CMake
1. Find the CMakeList.txt file and it's source
2. Setup the build folder and the source folder
3. Setup the CMake into using "Codeblocks MinGW Makefile"
4. Setup The MINGW_MAKE_PROGRAM into C:\Program Files\Codeblocks\MinGW\bin\mingw32-make.exe
6. Copy the linker file (*.a) into C:\Program Files\Codeblocks\MinGW\lib
7. Setup Codeblocks to link against them with -l[something]
8. Compile all done
Did I miss any step ?
Those are from what I learn in a few places while googling
Steps 4 and 6 don't look right. Unless you changed the installation directory of MingW it normally resides in it's own directory at C:\MingW and C::B doesn't install it's own MingW AFAIK. I'd double check to make sure those directories exist.
Why wouldn't it be there,
if it weren't there then CMake will produce some error
But the compile looks successful
The C compiler identification is GNU 4.7.1
The CXX compiler identification is GNU 4.7.1

Bah! I'm an idiot. Sorry I'm a Windows user so I don't use make files a whole lot. Go to the directory that is designated under "Where to build the binary's" in CMake then run mingw32-make.exe, DO NOT include the file name of cmake_install.cmake only the directory in which is resides. If I remember correctly this should build the libraries for you.
