I don't understand. If the "user" wants to have a destination other  
than the default provided by CMake, why don't they just run ccmake/ 
cmakesetup and set the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to what they want?
  CMake generated project files/makefiles can only be used on the  
system they were generated on so I am confused about your use case.  
Could you please explain in some more detail your use case for this   
and I bet we can find a solution for you.
