hmm, I ran 'ccmake ..' from my build dir.
set CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE to Debug (also tried 'debug')
then pressed 'c' to configure,
and it failed with the same error ;)

I think the problem comes from the CMakeLists.txt in kdeui (and other
libs probably)
QT_QTGUI_LIBRARY is used in this file, so I think cmake tells me that
it's required (regardless of whether QT_QTGUI_LIBRARY_DEBUG is available
or not).
maybe there should be some kind of syntax to say :
"I want to link with QT_QTGUI_LIBRARY _or_ QT_QTGUI_LIBRARY_DEBUG" in
the CMakeLists files
or a wrapper variable which is set to the correct library.

the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX variable seems to be always misdetected (as
/usr/local, whereas I have cmake in /opt/kde4)
