Add CMake installation for QMCPACK and NEXUS #1020
Based on the request in #1017 , we need to arrange "make install" to work for both QMCPACK and NEXUS. CMake has many options to support this.
I suggest we just focus on the default real cpu build. In later versions we can handle Quantum Espresso, ideally after our converter is in QE, and then complex.
What needs to be installed?
Although NEXUS is not a python package, there must be some standards to follow.
For reference, this is what I do in the Spack package for install.
I install all binaries in bin, I copy over the entire Nexus directory, and I "install" the manual.
Should we adopt some sort of standard for the names of the executables? (add qmc_ prefix, or at least have qmc in the name, as in convert4qmc) In the case where someone installs into a common directory (like /usr/local/bin), so the qmcpack-derived executables can be easily identified.
