[CMAKE] Use CPack to build packages

Authored by Fabien on Oct 18 2019, 15:51.



This diff adds a new package build target, which creates one or more
output suitable for installation. For now limited to building a tar.gz
or zip archive of an installation directory, more coming later.

Test Plan

On all platforms:

ninja package

Check the archive output is consistent with the items delivered in our
release binaries archives (requires D4229 for the libbitcoinconsensus
lib and include).

Seeing as the PROJECT_HOMEPAGE_URL lives somewhere else, shouldn't the vendor and description live in a similar common place also?

any reason for the capital 'B'? Seems like this should be Bitcoin-ABC or bitcoin-abc, not a mix of those.

The PROJECT_HOMEPAGE_URL is defined by the top-level project() declaration. There is no such thing for the description.
Regarding the VENDOR, a similar text can be found to define the copyright holders in the config files, but even if the text is the same the intent is very different so I left them separated.

This is only to match autotools. I agree it's a bit weird, but if you run an installer from autotools it will install into a Bitcoin-abc directory.

Thanks for explaining. I think there's some minor improvements we can make later, but they don't need to block this diff specifically.
