Yes, cmake found and reported python as found.

1) it found poppler (1.8.4 - current fedora 17 release level) but its 
version was rejected. Cmake wanted 1.9. Shouldn't have any affect on 

2) cmake reported that it was "--Building with Scripter 1", yet, there 
is no menu item for script for the build.
