The installed .cmake file is platform dependent, potentially architecture 
The purpose of these files is to contain information about the installed 
package, created by the installed package, so the Find-module doesn't have to 
guess but can simply include that file.
This can contain e.g. paths to libraries, compiler or linker flags, etc., i.e. 
very platform dependent information.
Currently for automoc4 the information isn't platform dependent, but I don't 
want to guarantee that it never will be, so I'd prefer to keep that in lib/ 
instead of share/.
