commit 75073a7ab22b7feb701ebf51f4fc0873456ec662
Author: Geert Janssens <geert at>
Date:   Sun Oct 6 21:27:10 2019 +0200

    Tweak install rule to be able to compile glib's schema's on Windows as well
    It's a bit of a hack based on the assumption DESTDIR is never set on Windows.
    A install time guard is added to assert this.
    It needed a few changes to make this working:
    - Have cmake expand DESTDIR instead of delaying this to bash
      If not, bash would see "$DESTDIRC:/gcdev64/..." and we'd loose
      the drive letter in bash' expansion of $DESTDIRC.
      So work with $ENV{DESTDIR} instead
    - To prevent cmake from already expanding this in the
      build system generation step add the appropriate escapes to
      that variable.
    - Add guard code in the install command that asserts
      DESTDIR is not set on Windows. Use similar escapes as
      necessary to ensure the evaluation happens at install time
      rather than in the generation step.

    Fix another dependency issue
    This one popped up while experimenting on Windows.
    In general: whenever a guile module (the ones created with
    'define-module' load files (via 'load-from-path')
    the loaded files must have been built before the
    module. Otherwise targets depending on the module
    may have dependency issues.
