             Summary: installing into custom location doesn't work nicely (and 
is not properly documented)
                 Key: PROTON-342
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-342
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.4
            Reporter: Gordon Sim
            Assignee: Darryl L. Pierce
             Fix For: 0.5

The README suggests setting -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX when running cmake, it does 
not mention setting DESTDIR when invoking make install.

If you don't set the DESTDIR on make install it will honour the 
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX for some parts of the installation (e.g. header files, 
native libraries, pkg-config file etc) but the python bindings (and I assume 
other bindings) will still install in the standard location which will fail if 
you are not running as root.

However if you set DESTDIR then this alters the location of the headers, 
libraries and pkg-config , which now install into 
$DESTDIR/$CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX and the pkg-config file no longer has the 
correct include or library paths in it.
