i reported the same problem under Windows (cmake/msvc) on this list recently.

Why is an INSTALL target needed? I'm not installing Blender system wide.

Can't we simply copy those files using something like below?

						COMMAND ${CMAKE_COMMAND} ARGS -E copy_if_different

At least instead of crashing, Blender should detect the missing files
and print a meaningful error in the console (did you build/run the
INSTALL target?)
