For the various FIND_XXX() commands there are the CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH, 
CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH and CMAKE_PROGRAM_PATH environment variables which are 
searched too.

The default search paths for Unix like systems are defined in 
Modules/Platform/UnixPaths.cmake, so all directories listed there don't have 
to be listed explicitely in the FIND_XXX() commands (they just haven't been 
removed when this was added). 

I saw the patch for X11 and curses, the additional directory is configured. 
Which values can it have ?

I added DragonFly.cmake to cmake cvs now.
It would be nice if you could try it, here are the instructions how to get it:

It would also be nice if you could run bin/ctest after building cmake in the 
build directory. This will run the cmake tests so you will see if everything 
works. Using "make Experimental" the build and test results should be 
submitted to the cmake dashboard: 

Ideally we'd like to have a Nightly build of CMake on DragonFly. All what is 
needed for that is a machine which can update cmake from cvs every night and 
then build and test cmake. It would be cool if you could do this on some
