Just as a sidenote (for the sake of the mailing list's posterity ;), it
should be clear that this is a problem with projectM shipping its own
version of FindFreetype2.cmake which uses find_library() and find_path()
with NO_DEFAULT_PATH. Any adjustments should not be necessary anymore in
case projectM drops its own FindFreetype.cmake in the future and starts
using CMake's FindFreetype.cmake :)
