I have cross-compiling working (via qmake), I just poke CMake about it
every now
and then to see if the qmake can be removed (they're outdated by quite
a bit). I
may see about getting FindKDE4Internal.cmake to work . I am curious how the
KDE version should/could be found without kde4-config though.


Ugh. Sorry...didn't send to mailing list.
