The -D option is like the -D option to gcc, that is, no space after the
cd app && cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/xtrkcad . && make

Optionally you can use the cmake class with cdbs, then your rules file
would only need:
[start of rules]
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/cmake.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk

DEB_CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX = /usr/lib/xtrkcad
[end of rules]

just make sure to build-depend on cdbs (>= 0.4.51)
