Thanks for the detailed information.  There seem to be two problems:

1.) The cmOrderLinkDirectories implementation is not detecting the
conflict provided by /usr/lib64.  Would you please provide a list of the
libraries in /usr/lib64 and a list of those in /d/kde/src/4/qt-copy/lib?

2.) The cmLocalGenerator::ComputeLinkInformation method hard-codes a set
of link directories to skip emitting.  Currently it has just "/usr/lib".
 We should probably add "/usr/lib64" to this list also, and it should
probably be converted to a Modules/Platform file variable setting.
