Thanks for the feeback. See here then (again, untested for now):

Would this one be ok?

Regarding GNUInstallDirs.cmake, the goal of this script is to make
CMake install step
more configurable. The part where it tries to guess libdir (and fail)
is for me a big mistake in the
design of this macro. For instance, there is no way I want multiarch
support for the software
I install in my home, even if I am running Debian :)

Ok I didn't know cross-releasing was allowed/supported by Bloom.
