KDE4 uses that in some of its modules, for example kdebase/workspace
(websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/), kdepimlibs
(http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdepimlibs/) and also kdevplatform
(http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/extragear/sdk/kdevplatform). Look at the
CMakeLists.txt in the 3 directories and the XXConfig.cmake.in. There's
also a FindXXX.cmake for at least 2 of the 3 modules in kdelibs


Expect the worst, it's the least you can do.
