There is a small issue with this:
if you just run cmake, and then run e.g. cmake-gui to change 
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, this change will not automatically propagate through to 
KAUTH_HELPER_PLUGIN_DIR, since this will be already in the CMake cache then.

Please have a look at the set_fancy() macro in FindKDE4Internal.cmake and see 
if it works for you (there is full documentation just above the macro).
