If we want to do that, then we have to stop using CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR everywhere
to mean "the top of this module", and use relative paths only...

(If we have CMakeLists.txt in KDE/ then CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR will be that dir,
and e.g. CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR/kio won't be kdelibs/kio as it is now)

But I think we should do that anyway, using relative paths. I regret that
am2cmake used absolute paths everywhere, since it makes it harder to move around
or rename things.
