Basic Installation

   These are generic installation instructions.

cmake doesn't produce any output into the source directory, by default. 
Instead it uses extra build directories for that. (This makes the 
make clean procedure obsolete, because you only have to remove the build dir)

To compile this project, simply create a build dir:

mkdir build

#cd into the build dir
cd build

#run cmake to do the "configure magic" 
#(yes, the two dots point to the source dir)
cmake ..


#and make install
make install

Compilers and Options

Compiler options can be set via ccmake or directly as a command-line option
for cmake. The most easy way would be to use ccmake.

To compile in debug symbols use:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug ..

Installation Names

   By default, `make install' will install the package's files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/man', etc.  You can specify an
installation prefix other than `/usr/local' by giving `cmake' the
