BTW, I can confirm now that this doesn't work: the RPM is created
successfully, but after installation the configuration files contain the
file names such as /home/joe/.rpm.d/buildroots/mysql-5.5.33/usr/bin/mysql
and the like, and certainly all the mess can't start, as the files are
installed to /usr/bin, not /home/.../buildroots/.../usr/bin

Unfortunately this doesn't help, at least for me.  Package build fails for
exactly the same reason at exactly the same point.  cmake_install.cmake
doesn't understand DESTDIR.  Perhaps I'll have to give up with packaging
and fall back to building from source, therefore abandoning the "Croco's
Owl Lamp" collection -- which is pity.

There's one thing I refuse to understand.  MySQL is used heavily around the
world, so there must be a lot of people who run into this trouble.  What
the hell is going on in this world if such a problem remains unaddressed?!

(and, heh, what's going on inside the heads of these _strange_ people who
make decisions like this, to start using dead-born stuff like cmake)
