official guidelines on the install location of cmake modules?

This is a bit of a developer's question, so apologies if I'm posting on the 
wrong list.

Is there any official set of guidelines/rules concerning where the cmake modules 
that come with KDE libraries (incl. the frameworks) can be installed?

I've stumbled upon the importance of that location for at least 2 libraries 
(grantlee and mobipocket); their cmake modules determine the installation prefix 
dynamically, using the install location of those same modules. IOW, those 
modules have to be installed into ${prefix}/lib/cmake and nowhere else.

Now I'm asking this mostly with KDE4 in mind, but as it turns out the Qt5 
version of grantlee continues to do the same thing.

Are those libraries misbehaving in this aspect, or am I as a packager trying to 
do something that's not supported (meaning I'll have to identify each library 
concerned and patch the files in question)?
