Justin Ross created PROTON-445:
Summary: Binding installation ignores prefix
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 0.5
Reporter: Justin Ross
It allows you *prepend* to the install prefix, but it gives you no way afaict
to actually change the prefix.
This is the opposite of nice. If you set a prefix for your build *and* you try
to get your bindings slotted in with them you get this:
# cmake -
^^ Note "/opt/myplace/opt/myplace", the first from DESTDIR, the second from
What it is doing now is simply abuse of DESTDIR. DESTDIR is intended to be a
mechanism for staged installs (packaging systems use this), and it cannot
function correctly as an override for prefix.
My proposed solution to this is to stop this madness: make the binding install
honor CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. Let the developer be responsible for choosing the
right location for his or her distribution.
