If somebody does 
it first finds FindKDE4.cmake from the cmake module directory.
This file uses kde4-config to find FindKDE4Internal.cmake. Up to here we 
shouldn't (better: can't) change things.

FindKDE4Internal.cmake (this one we can change) can then load the 
target-export file. Which is right now in the same directory as itself. If 
it's in lib, it has to find it.
