mkdir build &&
cd build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  \

To test the results, issue: make test.

Now, as the root user:

make install

If you have built the API documentation, install by issuing, as root user:

install -vdm755 /usr/share/doc/libical-2.0.0/html &&
cp -vr apidocs/html/* /usr/share/doc/libical-2.0.0/html
