+#
+# The above command takes every single file and puts it in the destination directory, but relative
+# paths are not taken into consideration, i.e. files a/b/c/file.h and boo.h will be both installed
+# in dest.
+#
+# By replacing install() with install_relative(), boo.h will end in dest, and a/b/c/file.h will end
+# in dest/a/b/c/file.h, i.e. relative paths are taken into account.

+# If an absolute path was specified for an input file, a fatal error will be raised: only relative
+# paths can be specified.

+# Since it is a drop-in command, its syntax is identical to install():
+#
+#   install_relative(FILES ... DESTINATION ... [OTHER_ARGS])
