Hmm, looking more closely at FindAutomoc4.cmake, I wonder if someone has 
jumped the gun requiring cmake 2.6.2? (Meaning, Alexander's comments in 
FindAutomoc4.cmake imply this might be ok in 2.6.2, but it is NOT ok in 
2.6.0 which I have.)

Since 2.6.2 is not required yet, what to do? I have it working currently 
(see attached), but I guess for cmake 2.6.2 this is superfluous? (IOW, I 
could commit it now with a note to revert when we require 2.6.2...)
