in soviet russia, cmake builds you!

I added a COMPILING-WITH-CMAKE file to kdelibs/ in trunk a while back 
containing - right then - my random guesses as to how it works and why. 
Fortunately, that's been fleshed out a bit since then by Alex and others. 
There's still a dire need of documentation - or a list of "you must read 
this" links - to explain stuff. See for instance my recent blog entry, for 
which Alexander Dymo posts a useful hint:

instead of 
	./configure --prefix=/foot/bar
	cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/foot/bar

That's part of the useful canon of knowledge around a buildsystem.
