      Description

      Hi

      I just installed a fresh version of vcpkg on W10.

      Then I tried to install Xalan-c.  The command I issued is

      C:\where\vcpkg\is> .\vcpkg install xalan-c

      This installs xerces and xalan-c libraries but leaves the Xalan.exe in the src subfolder of the vcpkg build structure.

      I would have expected some way to install the executable in some appropriate place, either default or of my choice.  Alas, I did not find anything in the vcpkg documentation that would help me in this regard.

      What I found is that, in theory, you should be able to do

      C:\where\vcpkg\is> .\vcpkg install xalan-c[tool]

      i.e., using a "feature" that would allow you to tell vcpkg to "install" the executable in a more sensible place.

      Please not that the while point for me was not to have to deal with Cmake and the build process.

      I understand that this may be mostly a vcpkg issue, but maybe it is not, and it is something that has to do with the way xalan-c is "packaged" for vcpkg.

      Any idea/help?

      Thanks

      Marco
