Guidelines for CMake
This document provides CMake best-practices for generating Fedora RPMS using CMake
If CMake is installed, see /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/cmake or /etc/rpm/macros.cmake on EL6.
If kde-filesystem is installed, see /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/macros.kde4
With recent cmake-2.4, it should not be used.
This CMake version should handle RPATHs issues correctly (set them in build-dir, remove them during installation).
CMAKE_SKIP_RPATH for this version would avoid RPATHs in build-dir too.
This might link binaries against system-libraries (e.g. when a previous version of the package was installed) instead of the libraries which were created by the build.
Nevertheless, RPATH issues might arise when CMake was used improperly.
For example, installing a target with
INSTALL(FILES ... RENAME ...) will not strip rpaths;
in this case
INSTALL(TARGETS ...) must be used in combination with changing the
NOTE: CMake has good documentation in two places:
