Hi Nilesh,

As you seem to be aware, the 


call in ECMPackageConfigHelpers.cmake:95 seems to think the 
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX variable is empty.

I don't see anything in recent ecm or attica commits which would cause this.

To start, please make sure this is a clean build of attica.

Can you add a message to your attica to output the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX 
before the function call? If that doesn't lead to a solution, I recommend 
editing your ECMPackageConfigHelpers.cmake before the file(RELATIVE_PATH) 
call to ensure that the variables have the expected values.
