[CMake] FIND_LIBRARY problem

I have a CMake build for a project. The project contains several 
directories (included with the SUBDIRS command). One of these 
directories has the same name as a library that I search for using 
FIND_LIBRARY. For some reason, cmake returns the path to this 
subdirectory instead of the path to the shared library I'd like to find.

For example:

My project directory contains:

The library is located in:

My cmakelists.txt file contains:

  PATHS "....../third-party/lib"

After I run ccmake .. from the build directory: FOUND_ACRONYM == 
"build/acronym". If I change the name of the subdirectory in my project 
everything works as expected and the library is found. I've tried add 
all of the NO_* options to FIND_LIBRARY but without success. Of course I 
don't want to have to change the name of the directory in my project.
