#1312 closed defect (invalid)

install paths should be absolute to ease package creation.

Description

qmake calculates configures prefix path as a relative path. this comes in very unhandy when you need to install to a temporary dir to create packages. make install INSTALL_ROOT=path is rendered completely useless by this behaviour.

If this is a bug (which I don't believe it is), then it belongs to QT. Feel free to reopen this ticket if you have a patch.

qmake has a bug that building under /usr will, in some conditions, create bad paths - http://lists.atrpms.net/pipermail/atrpms-devel/2004-February/000018.html. The workaround is to build under another dir (or fix qmake). Maybe this should be added to the wiki?
