I've committed now a change to the SVN (r371) initializing the variable  
CMAKE_INSTALL_NAME_DIR in the main CMakeLists.txt when configuring FS for Mac 
OSX, because this variable should always be set with the same value. I don't 
want to do that with the other variables, but you can set them easily in the 
command line or using the GUI CMake interface. For instance this command line


is equivalent to your patch.

The LIB_SUFFIX variable was already declared with the CACHE option. It is 
initialized to "64" in machines using 64 bit pointers, but you can change it 
anyway in the command line or using the GUI.

The RPATH related variables [1] can also be set in the command line, and it 
seems wrong to me hardcoding some choices in the CMake scripts, because the 
settings are expected to be different depending on the system and the type of 
user. I use RPATH in Linux with the default settings, because it is convenient 
for me as developer. Other people may prefer to use -DCMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=1 in 
the command line, to avoid RPATH in their Unix builds. In Windows, this 
feature doesn't exist. Some packagers (for instance, Debian) build the 
software with the default RPATH settings, stripping later the paths from the 
binaries before rolling the packages.
