That doesn't work if waffle is built as a static library. Or Windows 
where the linker needs the path to the import library.

Most of the modules in /usr/share/cmake-3.0/Modules/Find*.cmake do set 

    $ grep '^#.*_LIB\w\+_DIR' /usr/share/cmake-3.0/Modules/Find*.cmake

And I could only find one on /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/ FWIW:

   $ grep -R '^#.*_LIB\w\+_DIR' /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/
Waffle_LIBRARY_DIRS - Library directories to search for link libraries

You can actually commit it as is now.  As is not a huge deal for me -- I 
modified my piglit build script to pass
