The CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_CONTROL_EXTRA variable can be used to specify other files such as a
postinst script. When I also store a path in
CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_CONTROL_EXTRA to a
links file I expected CPack to create the specified symlinks within the Debian package; however, it does not. Instead it stores the
links file in the control.tar.gz. Does CPack support the Debian
links other file? If not, is there some other technic for installing symlinks with CMake / CPack besides creating them in the post install script?
The Debian package info is here.
