You'll have to forgive me, I am really not that on top of blender's 
development. I posted this here because I too had problems building 
blenderplayer with CMake and it seemed to match.

Yeah, I too wasn't sure if this was the best way to solve the issue but it 
worked for me, and it seemed simple enough. I've just had a look through 
various CMakeLists.txt and I seem to have a better understanding of the 
problem, but also realized that this is no longer be a problem in 2.5 (a lot 
has changed). And you are absolutely right in this not being the right way to 
do this.

That's too bad, I really like the CMake system much more than SCons or the 
other alternatives :(

No, I think you can safely forget about that patch :)

I will have a closer look tomorrow. I can confirm that this is still an issue 
on the 2.4 branch.

In any case, I'd also like to confirm the problem originally reported in this 

Thank you Campbell for your response to my scriptsdir thread, I can see you 
put a lot of thought and effort into writing that.
