cmake arguments are not correct
Last modified: 2016-01-21 10:33:32 EST
I was rebuilding libical recently and I tried to use arguments shown in the build log  in my local build and override the lib directory, but it didn't work. I asked on their list, thinking it's and issue on their side, but the developer pointed me out that it me doing things wrong . In short, koji uses
but the correct variable to be used, according to the libical developer , is
The later looks like the correct variable, a standard one for cmake, thus I'd add it (not replace, to not break things) it to the argument list of the cmake build command.
there is nothing that could possibly be changed in koji to fix this, reassigning to libical
Doesn't explicitly set or use either of those, so NOTABUG.
Feel free to customize it as you see fit (using the correct CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR here)

Ehm, my fault, the CMAKE_ prefix of the variable made me think that the libical uses a standard cmake variable, but there is no such available . I didn't verify that before posting this bug report. I'm sorry.
Otherwise my rant was meant for a build system, which is koji from my point of view, to add the variable into the command line. My request is invalid, as the variable is unknown to cmake.
 for cmake 3.4.1, the below command returns nothing:
$ cmake --help-variable-list | grep LIBDIR
for what libical uses and supports currently (its CMakeLists.txt uses this module)
