(a) could accept a path but not (b), unless we derive it from (a) but I can see a lot of complication there for the testing step. Would that be ok to choke on CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR being a path and not a directory component?

Why can NixOS not use `CMAKE_INSTALL_FULL_LIBDIR`?  That is computed to `${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}${CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR}` only if it is not already defined to an absolute path.
