This may be the standard in Fedora, but it is not a CMake standard at all. You 
can ask in the CMake mailing list, or search for similar questions in the 
archives, for instance: 

I've adopted the variable name "LIB_INSTALL_DIR" because i'm used to it in my 
KDE projects, but it is not a standard outside KDE. The FluidSynth's 
LIB_INSTALL_DIR is a constant defined in cmake_admin/DefaultDirs.cmake, with 
the value "lib". The other variable LIB_SUFFIX is initialized in the main 
CMakeLists.txt with the value "64" or empty. You can override the 
initialization value of these variables in the command line, if you want:

$ cmake .. -DLIB_SUFFIX=""

This can be easily added to the RPM spec file too. I find this method much more 
comfortable than applying patches.
