Well, sadly not. I always specify the layout manually for the different
platforms and for Windows I normally choose "versioned" so that I get the
desired scheme. Since 1.66 ,"versioned" yields this different result.

Anyway, manually renaming the files and disabling all autolinking did the
trick and I can now use stock CMake again to locate the libraries. As long
as I am fully static that is.

Thanks everyone!
