FindKDE4Internal.cmake is under share/.
A KDELibsConfig.cmake would be under lib/.
Theoretically it would be possible that in a networked install the share/ is 
used for different architectures, while the different hosts (Solaris, BSD, 
Linux) use separate lib/ directories. Right ?
Would they all exist on one system, which different names, like libBSD/, 
libSunos/ etc. or would they be mounted accordingly, so that always only one 
of them is there, and its name is always lib/ ?

The thing is, how do I find out from /opt/kde/share where my corresponding 
lib/ directory is ?
I could install another (configured) file, which tells me the lib/ directory. 
But would this then still work for such a networked install ?
