Thanks for letting me know.
This is because we have a copy of FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake, and the 
version in cmake now supports extended syntax, but the find-modules which we 
use from cmake now get out FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake, which cannot 
(yet) handle this additional arguments.
I have a look at it.
