[reported by blelbach] [Trac time Tue Feb 28 22:20:42 2012] * hpx_find_* macros should have a parameter specifying what prefixes to check for CMake detection variables (*_USE_SYSTEM, *_ROOT, etc). For example, for the HDF5 C++ library (HDF5_CPP), we want to check HDF5_USE_SYSTEM and HDF5_CPP_USE_SYSTEM (with the latter overriding the former).

  • hpx_find_* macros should have a parameter specifying what environmental variables to check for roots to use. For example, for Boost (BOOST), we want to check BOOST and BOOST_ROOT (with the latter overriding the former).

For both of the above parameters, the standard names (e.g. ${name}_ROOT, ${name}_USE_SYSTEM) should override the specified parameters.

I think having hpx_find macros was a bad idea to begin with. With ecdb034 most of them have been removed and replace with find scripts following the cmake conventions. In addition they don't depend on HPX specific macros anymore so they can be pushed upstream eventually.
Closing this as "won't fix"
