[osg-users] CMAKE for Windows

I placed all additional software to a subdirectory of the OpenSceneGraph_SOURCE_DIR path because
I have a lot of other solutions in the project path of VS.net and I like to know which software path
belongs to which solution/project. But, with the proposed solutions you can change the path to 3RDPARTY_DIR
and each plugin and set the path individually. It's like what can be done under Unix with ./config.
The first statement 'SET(PLUGINS_DIR ${OpenSceneGraph_SOURCE_DIR}/Plugins' was only for internal use of

The main aspect is the introduction of such a config.cmake for windows.

Hello Wolfgang,

So you want the 3rdParty directory to live inside  
OpenSceneGraph/Plugins? In the past, the standard location has always  
been parallel to OpenSceneGraph, which I find cleaner because then if  
you need to you can just wipe the OpenSceneGraph dir and re-checkout  
from SVN to get a clean source tree.

Other than that, I'm all for standardizing a set of paths for plugins  
and dependencies. I just don't agree with putting them *inside*  
OpenSceneGraph. I think parallel would be better. Something like:


Of course, if ${PLUGINS_DIR} is modifiable then it's less of a  
problem, but I still think the default should promote a clean source
