ccmake to see what the options are; cmake -DFOO=BAR to set them from the 
command line if you like.

Umm .. cmake generates makefiles. I''m not sure where packaging comes in at 
this point.

On the whole, though, you're right that there's a lack of a introductory 
document tailored for KDE. There's kdelibs/COMPILING-WITH-CMAKE to fill out, 
and Alex and others have indicated it's on their todo list (but you too can 
add stuff there once you figure it out).

These are your friends - Adem
