Can't configure kdevelop, unable to find kdevplatform

This looks to be caused by the simplification of FindKDevPlatform 9 days
ago (I don't think I've built since then, anyway). I get this:
CMake Error: find_package could not find a configuration file for
Set KDevPlatform_DIR to the directory containing a CMake configuration
file for KDevPlatform. The file will have one of the following names:
FATALCould not find KDevPlatform libraries, searched in and . You can
set CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to search in other directories.
(There's also a missing space in that error message...)
It seems that, unlike the Find's for automoc, strigi, etc,
FindKDevPlatform does not check CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. Since most people
are probably installing kdevelop and kdevplatform to the same location,
this seems like a reasonable thing to do, but I'm not entirely sure how
to go about adapting e.g. FindAutomoc.cmake for KDevPlatform. (The naive
way is to append CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH, but automoc
seems to do something better, but without more digging I'm not clear how
it works. I'm hoping someone else will have a better idea.)

When on POSIX, do as POSIX mandates.
