FYI, the problem described here:


is no longer handled via the CMAKE_LINK_OLD_PATHS compatibility mode so
setting the variable for CMake 2.6 is useless.  Instead the new "CMake
Policy" mechanism handles the situation in a more compatible way.
Basically the compatibility linker search paths are added by default
(with a warning) until a policy is set to tell it not to do so.

For more information, see:


  cmake --help-policy CMP0003
