Problem with the "Importing and Exporting Guide"

I’ve spent the past three days trying to figure out what’s wrong with me since I was unable to find my installed project using the find_package() command but ultimately I think I was misled by tutorial in the official documentation.

Unless I’m missing something, installing the config file to ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/lib/cmake makes it impossible for the aforementioned command to find the config file, at least on Windows. Changing DESTINATION and INSTALL_DESTINATION to cmake solves the issue.

This is the doc I’m referring to.

I think that probably wants to be lib/cmake/MathFunctions rather than just lib/cmake.
