If it helps, here is TOPSUBDIRS from the generated Makefile (linewrapped 
for clarity):

TOPSUBDIRS =  dcop libltdl kdefx kdecore kdeui kdesu kjs pics \
	mimetypes licenses libkscreensaver libkmid kstyles kparts \
	kmdi kio kinit kimgio kjs kdewidgets kde print kded \
	kconf_update kcert kutils kresources kab interfaces \
	kdoctools arts kioslave khtml kate kabc doc
