Thanks for your reply.

I have tried settings CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to point to my cmake modules path
but it still doesn't work i.e. CMAKE_MODULE_PATH=../ExternalLibraries/ODB/

Apologise for my naive question, but what do you mean by "pkg config path
is properly set up". Which paths are you referring to?
