I need to build several independent "variants" of Blender (differently modified sources for the same target platform) and would like to use the same "lib" folder for all of them. I cannot place them in the same "root" folder with the lib folder (the usual folder structure).
Essentially, I would like to have something like this:
MyBlenderDEVroot lib <- this is where I'd like to have lib folder Variant1 blender <- Blender sources builds <- build output folder mydocs mystuff Variant2 blender <- Blender sources builds <- build output folder mydocs mystuff
I know that I can have differently named "blender" and "builds" folders (like blender_v1, builds_v1, blender_v2, builds_v2, etc.) in the same root but I want them fully separated.
I am targeting Windows and I use VS2013 with CMake.
I have no problems building Blender the "normal" way, just would like to avoid having the same mutli-GB lib folder repeated all over the place.
