Yeah but would you really want to see all kconfig_compiler-generated files
re-created every time kdelibs is reinstalled - even though in 99% of the cases
from now on, the logic inside kconfig_compiler won't have changed?
(but it will have been relinked because kdecore changed).

Maybe we need to install a cmake file with the version number of kconfig_compiler,
in order to trigger a recompilation only when the version of kconfig_compiler 
is newer than the version that was used to generate the current generated files...
