Here, the problem is that there are two versions of FindOpenCV in the 
wild, one defining OpenCV_LIBRARIES and one defining OpenCV_LIBS. I 
don't know who distributes which version, but at least the one that is 
shipped with libkface defines OpenCV_LIBRARIES. Since we add all 
FindXXX.cmake files from all our libraries to the modules search path, 
CMake should find the FindOpenCV.cmake file in the libkface directory. I 
added an IF-clause to make sure we handle both variable names in the 
future (commit 1206532):

# there are two versions of FindOpenCV.cmake in the wild, one defining
# OpenCV_LIBRARIES, the other defining OpenCV_LIBS. Make sure we handle
# both cases.

# same story with OpenCV_INCLUDE_DIRS and OpenCV_INCLUDE_DIR:

I guess the problem here is again the two versions, where the one which 
we ship is incapable of finding your OpenCV installation. Again, with 
the patch above, it should work also with your FindOpenCV.cmake file. 
But it's kind of a hack to ask the user to remove the FindOpenCV.cmake 
in a subdirectory before he can compile, so I added an option to not use 
the FindOpenCV.cmake shipped with libkface in commit 1206536. Add 

I hope this solves all the FindOpenCV issues for now. Please let me know 
whether it works, and thanks for trying it!
