I had errors about Qt5Transitional not being found (it's only in 0.0.3,
right?), then errors about KDE4Internal not being found (I fixed that one). But
before all that I had
install TARGETS given unknown argument "EXPORT".
which is what led me to update cmake+ECM.

But if you have both installed, it will pick 0.0.2, right?

Clearly it doesn't -- I wasn't the only one who couldn't configure kdelibs
If you find out what went wrong we can revert the min number in kdelibs
toplevel CMakeLists.txt... but I'm not sure that supporting multiple versions
of ECM is worth the trouble?
