Your task

CMake is our build structure: inside every CMakeLists.txt you can find a list of files to be compiled and a given set of options. Very powerful, opensource and crossplatform, visit to read documentation.

Because CMake doesn't support Freepascal, we had to add a lot of discovery lines inside our list of file. Your task is to move such code from hedgewars/CMakeLists.txt to its proper module FindFreepascal.cmake. Note that all functionality must be preserved.


A working patch, that applies cleanly to our source tree. This patch should be in the form of a pull from clone, hg export or unified diff format (in order of preference) implementing the functionality required.
