You could try with a more recent version of CMake, i.e. 2.8.7. At least
the release changelog for 2.8.7 has various cross-compiling related

Hmm, do you have multiple of these targets-files installed on your
system? Maybe your build picks up the wrong one hence gets the wrong
paths? The KDELibs4LibraryTargets.cmake file should be used in
FindKDE4Internal.cmake to setup the imported targets, add some message()
calls there to see which one is being picked up.
