I had the same issue. Apparently its a feature[1] :-)

You can use `make install DESTDIR=/vobs/xxx_oss/qpid` _instead_ of using 
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX and it should put it all under that including the 
any/all of the swig bindings being built.

[1] Something to do with special logic needed to determine the correct 
location for e.g. python libraries.
