On Debian, only cmake itself installs to /usr/share/cmake-<version>/Modules/,
anything else installing there would be a (serious) bug. A few reasons for
1) Directory has a major cmake version number embedded which already screams
that it's private.
2) Library itself should install *Config.cmake file rather than Find* file.
cmake 2.6 is almost 4 years old, no need to stay in the stone age.
3) If package/library needs Find* files for 3rd party libraries, it can setup
required paths via *Config.cmake file so cmake will find them. phonon does
something similar (iirc).
4) They key in KDElibs case is (as Alex said in other mail):

But in general *Config.cmake deprecates the need for that small
