I guess you mean PATHS here. PATH is a well-known environment variable ;)

That can only be fixed properly with CMake 2.6.2, which allows to set
HINTS-paths that are checked before standard system paths. The workaround
with cmake 2.6.0/1 is to do 2 find_path's, the first with the
NO_CMAKE_SYSTEM_PATH but PATHS parameter, the second without
NO_CMAKE_SYSTEM_PATH and hence also searching /usr&co.

As requiring cmake 2.6 is probably still a month or two away I think your
change for this should go in now.


You had some happiness once, but your parents moved away, and you had to
leave it behind.
