I would still recommend build using rpmbuild to create an RPM. It's
fairly trivial to update the spec file when you update the source and
you don't have to remember a bunch of cmake options or other tweaks.
Also, installing an RPM makes uninstall easier since RPM tracks the
files and library requirements. In fact I always build with rpmbuild
so I don't have to worry about installing stuff in /var/local , depend
on "make uninstall", and can easily manipulate where files get
installed. Also, rpmlint catches a lot of bad practices and issues.

If you're curious I can give you more details of my process. I can
also provide my source RPM to get you started.

Well I just rebuilt my blender, which is fairly recent although not
current SVN (48174) and it linked with oiio without issue...

Are you using the cmake options I posted previously? Obviously the
macros are not automatically expanded for you but just adjust them.
Also, you didn't post the configuration part of the build output. Did
you verify that cmake found oiio (or at least think it did)?
