> 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, via DESTDIR, you get this:
> # cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/opt/myplace 
> /var/tmp/jross/baker/proton/source
> # make install DESTDIR=/opt/myplace
> /opt/myplace/usr/lib/python/*python files*
> /opt/myplace/opt/myplace/lib/*c files*
> ^^ Note "/opt/myplace/opt/myplace", the first from DESTDIR, the second from 
> CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX
> 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.
> http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/DESTDIR.html
> 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.
