Gordon Sim commented on PROTON-342:

Also, if 'DESTDIR isn't meant to update the paths' in the pkg conf file, that 
should probably be noted in the README.

> installing into custom location doesn't work nicely (and is not properly 
> documented)

> 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.
