cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="~/sword-cmake-build/install" 
-DSWORD_BUILD_EXAMPLES=Yes /path/to/svn/sword

Yes, it's a clean directory.

I output the value of SWORD_PYTHON_INSTALL_DIR, and it says the value is 
"OFF". Again, if I remove the OPTION command in options.cmake, then it 
takes the value that I pass in from the command line.
