It has gotten off topic.  Discussions about what cmake/cpack can or can 
not do do not belong on this list.  Sorry for that msys folks... 
However, I still don't have a clear picture of what the msys developers 
would recommend.  So far we have gotten two opposite opinions from msys

So, unless there are any more opinions on what the default install path 
for msys should be for CMake from someone other than myself, Brandon, or 
Gonzalo, I suppose we should end the thread on the msys list.

Thanks for the help.
