This way of doing things isn't optimal, but should work.  Examine your call
to target_link_libraries() in the CMakeLists.txt file, the relevant output
when you run "make VERBOSE=1", and a directory listing where the file is

Your problem is most likely an incorrect path to the library, inadequate
linking (i.e. you need to link additional libraries to the target), or file
