Oh well, find_package() is just a helper for the package option. The
is to make it easier to add extra packages (like a third party package
incuded in the distro)
Now for the package_dir, option, I wouldn't mind removing it. I have
always hated it too.
If we just kill it, people will just have to provide packages relative
to the root,
I am +1 to remove package_dir
