Well, the question is whether it would be possible to get relative paths.
This can either be achieved by postprocessing (not my favourite as cmake 
is able to do this and as it will turn out to be buggy) or by using the 
same relative path that is already used for the paths of the KDE 
libraries (which would be my wish...)
