Can't this use the standard LIB_SUFFIX?
This is what I really hate about CMake, autotools is somewhat
standardized, with CMake everyone does their own thing.
For packagers, standardization is far more interesting since we have
build-scripts & macros that have some sensible defaults...
For users it sucks to have to look through all the CMake options to find
what you named it, rather than looking whether the de-factor standard
for this is available.
