Allow 'make uninstall' w/out building or installing

Current 'make uninstall' rule requires a full build and install in order to work. It'd be useful if you could uninstall w/out building or installing first, in case you cleaned your build tree after installing...

Hello, bug triage...

this is still true for QGIS 2.13 master !

When you use the instructions indicated in the INSTALL file and try to make uninstall just after ccmake .., you've got the following:

CMake Error at cmake_uninstall.cmake:2 (MESSAGE):
  Cannot find install manifest:

So you can't make a build directory, configure CMake with ccmake and make uninstall without having made at least one make install. But it seems to be a CMake problem and not a QGIS one. Should we delete this bug or try to find a workaround ?

#5 Updated by Sandro Santilli about 8 years ago

is there a target that builds install_manifest.txt, to make it a dependency of the "uninstall" target ?
