I have pushed changes to this effect in SVN. Can you please pull them down and report (to me at least) their validity?

Did this *ever* work? I guess I've never tried it, though I do frequently do out of source builds with cmake.

I'd like to wait for this patch to make it in. It is useful and geotiff's release schedule is so long that it will likely be more than a year before it would make it out to packagers. Another week isn't too bad. Does that sound ok Frank/others?
