Laurent was so nice to do the actual work as I knew what I wanted, but wasn't 
able to write the cmake code for that ;)

So let me point out to you, that today's SVN will follow kdelibs whereever it 
goes - also KStandardDirs follows. In KDE3 you could overwrite installation 
paths, but you also had to install a /etc/kderc for KDE apps to follow you. 
I changed that yesterday. 

Thanks Laurent.

Greetings, Stephan

SVN commit 669808 by mlaurent:

Patch requested by Coolo.
" you configure kdelibs to CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr 
"then you go to kdetoys and do CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr"
cmake didn't use CONFIG_INSTALL_DIR.
Now we store value into KDELibsDependencies.cmake and we can use directly.
not necessary to re-specify CONFIG_INSTALL_DIR in each module.
