Removing RPATH from existing binaries

Federico Milano
Hi. When packaging my application, I'm using install (FILES...) to copy some third party executables to my binary folder. 

1. I do not know if I'm doing it right or if I should use install (PROGRAMS...)
2. Some of the binaries have a RPATH, and I want to remove it. Is there any CMake macro/function to do that, or should I call directly chrpath?

Thanks in advance,

Federico

if you look at the generated cmake_install.cmake scripts, you'll see the calls
cmake uses to modify the RPATH when installing, I think it's some undocumented
subfunction of the file() command.
