yes, this is correct behavior. anytime you run a build from a subdirectory, 
cmake goes back to the toplevel directory and checks to make sure the build 
system is kosher, does its dependency checking, and then starts the build of 
any dependencies required plus the subdir you are in. The reason you need 
kdepimlibs is because it's been specified that all of kdebase needs 
kdepimlibs. the configuration of kdepimlibs needs to be made modular in order 
to avoid this situation.

For now though, you'll need to install kdepimlibs.
