In the version 1.4 find_package() calls were made without the REQUIRED
keyword. Hence, this error wasn't detected by the autobuilders. This
is now fixed upstream and I hope a new release will appear soon. But
meanwhile let's apply this fix.
Alternatively I could bump libftdi1 via a git instead of getting a
source tar file.

I'm preparing a libftdi1 test for Python for BR's CI. So that we could
catch such errors in the future.
