DESTDIR release/H:\ debug:/H:\ (Windows)

  • Hi All,

    I've got a project that is being developed for my students and they need to build a library in their H:\ home folder (security locks down the C:\ drive).

    When I generate the makefiles I get the following

    Any combination of setting DESTDIR and DESTDIR_TARGET doesn't change the pre-pending of the release / debug to the Makefile, does anyone know where this is set and how I can get rid of it? (This doesn't happen on Mac or Linux just windows).

    On Windows its normal, Visual Studio when building does the same thing: one folder for each type of build.
