Bug Description

There is no way to ensure that an install() call will always be run last, within the directory where it is added. There are certain features in various toolkits and environments, that when installing new data files to some locations, additional tools need to be run to update the cache in those locations, when installing to the system from source. However, current cmake appears to have no way to force an install rule to be run last, within the install stage. This is particularly necessary for the CODE|SCRIPT syntax of the install() command.

Added cmake-extras as we need this support in cmake for the GSettings module provided there.

mmm do you want to open an upstream ticket for this?
