There are good CMS and bad ones, so some are going to be worse for SEO than others. I write my own, so I can see how customising them for SEO purposes doesn't have to be a problem. But the whole point of a CMS is to take the burden of coding and decision-making out of the hands of the webmaster, so it's a trade-off between control and ease of use. When it comes to SEO you often need to take that control back, and that won't be so easy with many off-the-shelf products.
