add separate option CATKIN_INSTALL_INTO_PREFIX_ROOT #940

@dirk-thomas dirk-thomas commented May 30, 2018

The existing option CATKIN_BUILD_BINARY_PACKAGE is being used in the generated Debian rules files (except for catkin itself). Currently that flag has two effects:

When building ROS 1 packages with colcon the second side effect is desired when building with --merge-install but the first one is not. In order to select that combination this patch introduces a new flag named CATKIN_INSTALL_INTO_PREFIX_ROOT. The value of this new variable is being initialized based on the value of the existing variable CATKIN_BUILD_BINARY_PACKAGE (in case it is not being passed explicitly from the command line). This allows colcon-ros to pass -DCATKIN_INSTALL_INTO_PREFIX_ROOT=0 while still keeping tests enabled (see colcon/colcon-ros#11).
