What I forgot to mention:
out-of-source build works too. enable-final is implemented (set the option 
KDE4_ENABLE_FINAL to on using ccmake), but it didn't get very far. I think 
dcop/ built, but shortly later I got some error message.
All executables are create in ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/bin, all shared libraries 
and plugins in ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/lib . Executables are currently created 
with RPATH set, see the discussions on kde-buildsystem for more information 
on this topic.

So, I think that's all.
