I completely agree, if I build phonon myself and install to /usr/local,
but have Qt from packages I never want the backends to be in the
qt-install-dir, but under /usr/local/lib/kde4/plugins.

So its fine to do this if CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX == Qt-Install-Prefix, but
else its not.

Give your very best today.  Heaven knows it's little enough.
