Summary0002637: need modification in makeCGAL for CGAL 4.9.x
Descriptionsince CGAL 4.9, CGAL_INSTALL_LIB_DIR is set to lib64 for x86_64 instead lib.
this change make trouble when compiling openfoam due to the wrong library path for CGAL.

I think it would nice to add CGAL_INSTALL_LIB_DIR explicitly in makeCGAL script as follows:

in line 275,
cmake \
        -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
        -DWITH_CGAL_Qt5=OFF \
        -DCGAL_INSTALL_LIB_DIR=lib \

Shouldn't it be

cmake \
        -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \
        -DWITH_CGAL_Qt5=OFF \

It is better. Thanks.

I have upgraded CGAL in OpenFOAM-dev to 4.10, could you test it and let me know if this resolves the library location issue on your machine? If it does I will also update OpenFOAM-5.x.

I have checked the updated code (commit 384f9a5cf61a4066679fd5aa023880eaac9b52ce) in OpenFOAM-dev and found the code working without any problem.

Further to this, need minor modification in Allwmake in ThirdParty-dev

in line 355,


instead of

  if [ -r $CGAL_ARCH_PATH/lib/libCGAL.so ]
