Git build, problems with plugins (s63, climatology)

Just a quick note for anyone that may be running into some problems installing plugins after building from the git source.

There's a note on the Developer's documentation that states:


Default install in /usr/local, you can change this by providing cmake appropriate option:
cmake -DPREFIX=/usr ../
It should be emphasized noted that if you don't do this, many plugins will not install properly (as by default it seems the plugins all install to /usr/lib/opencpn and the default setting for the opencpn git build is to install to /usr/local/lib/opencpn

Re: Git build, problems with plugins (s63, climatology)

I think because developers who compile plugins typically compile opencpn as well and so everything is in /usr/local I'm not sure about s63, but all my plugins install to /usr/local by default.

You might notice that "make package" installs to /usr regardless of the prefix setting.
