  I did a fresh checkout from subversion HEAD and was able to get a
  separate build directory sorted.  (Which implies that if one
  subsequently wants to create a separate build directory after
  already configuring via cmake for a different directory, that there
  must be a mechanism to convince cmake to work in the new hierarchy.
  At least I hope so, because my current work-around seems to be doing
  a fresh checkout from subversion.)

  In any case, after doing all that I'm back to the original error:

mcoletti at mcolettib886:~/projects/qgis/build> make
[  0%] Built target svnversion
[  9%] Built target ui
[ 27%] Built target qgis_core
[ 33%] Built target qgis_gui
[ 65%] Built target qgis
[ 69%] Built target translations
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `src/core/libqgis_core.so', needed by `python/core/Makefile'.  Stop.
make[1]: *** [python/CMakeFiles/python.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

  And no sign of that library in the build hierarchy:

mcoletti at mcolettib886:~/projects/qgis/build> find . -name libqgis_core.so
mcoletti at mcolettib886:~/projects/qgis/build>

  But it _is_ in the install directory:

mcoletti at mcolettib886:~/projects/qgis/build> find $QGIS_PREFIX/lib -name libqgis_core.so

  Would it be helpful to post any CMake state info?  (And, if so, ummm
  where does CMake store that?)

  I deleted them.
