As far as I understand all the mess, CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX is for specifying
the final target prefix, such as /usr, /usr/local, /opt and the like.
In order to pack the files into an RPM, they shoud be copied into a
directory to which there are relative dirs such as $DIR/usr,
$DIR/usr/bin, $DIR/usr/share, $DIR/etc, ..., where $DIR is something like
/home/joe/.rpm.d/BUILD/mysql-5.5.33, it is the %buildroot in the .spec, and
it is the dir to be specified via DESTDIR= when it comes to 'make install'.

Or am I wrong?
