Summary0004993: "make package" fails to work for absolute INSTALL DESTINATIONs
DescriptionThe result (on Unix systems) is a compressed tarball of NULL characters.

A fix that works for PLplot is to apply the following patch (suggested on list) to the CMake source code:

--- cmCPackGenericGenerator.cxx_original 2007-01-12
11:41:24.000000000 -0800
+++ cmCPackGenericGenerator.cxx 2007-01-12 11:41:50.000000000 -0800

     return 0;
     }

- bool movable = true;
+ bool movable = false;
   if ( movable )
     {
     // Make sure there is no destdir

I am not sure of the full implications of this fix, but it does work for PLplot so my vote would be to go ahead and make this change.

This can now be done by setting CPACK_SET_DESTDIR to ON.
