it would be nice if somebody besides me could give CMake 2.4.8 RC9 a try.
This will be the last CMake 2.4.x release and as such it would really suck if 
it would have a problem building KDE 4.
I tested it on my machine and I didn't notice any problems (actually there 
also shouldn't be any problems).

So please give it a try and let me know ASAP if it doesn't work (also if it 
does work).

The CMake 2.4.8 release is somewhat important for us since it actually makes 
KDEDIRS handling work in order to find kde4-config.
