parent b32910c7
......@@ -434,10 +434,12 @@ More advanced options:
* `PARAVIEW_INSTALL_DEVELOPMENT_FILES` (default `ON`): If set, ParaView will
install its headers, CMake API, etc. into its install tree for use.
* `PARAVIEW_RELOCATABLE_INSTALL` (default `ON`): If set, the install tree
will be relocatable to another path. If unset, the install tree may be tied
to the build machine with absolute paths, but finding dependencies in
non-standard locations may require work without passing extra information
when consuming ParaView.
will be relocatable to another path or machine. External dependencies
needed by ParaView which are in non-standard locations may need manual
settings in ParaView-using projects (those which share an install prefix
with ParaView should be OK though). If unset, the install tree will include
hints for the location of its dependencies which may include
build-machine-specific paths in the install tree.

These variables should be documented once they're effective again.
