Yes, that's true. Still we have to check if that macro
is licensed under the BSD license with advertising clause.
According to the macro code there should be a "COPYING-CMAKE-SCRIPTS"
file which we must include, too.
I quickly googled for "COPYING-CMAKE-SCRIPTS" and it seems
to contain an advertising clause if it's the one from KDE.
That something I would rather avoid in libftdi.
Also the header of the macro mentions the "freetype" library?
libftdi - see http://www.intra2net.com/en/developer/libftdi for details.
