I accidentally send my mail direct, instead of to the list, so now to the
list again.

Good to hear. In the case CMake doesn't have a bundled find file, often
something can be found on other projects. On the other hand, making an own
Find module is straightforward and simple if only the library and headers
are needed (most likely enough to start with).

Good the hear, there is a big chance the CMake script will work on other
platforms as well.

Do you also intend to use CMake for project file generation?
