I'm not familiar with CMake or Fedora, but I do know how Debian
packages work. It sounds like a difference of opinion between the
upstream (FluidSynth) and distro (Fedora) -- these sort of differences
happen all the time. In Debian, there is a system in place for
maintaining patches against the upstream.

There are often legitimate reasons for these differences (for
instance, the upstream legitimately wants to install to /usr/local/lib
and the distro legitimately wants to install to /usr/lib). So does
Fedora / RPM have anything in place where the distro could maintain an
altered CMake file for their purposes, without requiring the changes
be pushed upstream into the FluidSynth repository?
