Blitz is still not found for me -- because I install kdesupport into its own prefix.
FindBlitz seems to expect blitz to be installed into the same dir as kdelibs,
or in /usr, but that's not the case. Strigi supports an env var (STRIGI_HOME)
so that it can be installed anywhere; ok if I add an env var for blitz?
(BLITZDIR for consistency with Qt, KDE, etc. or BLITZ_HOME for consistency with strigi?)
Or should that be QIMAGEBLITZDIR? :)
