Sorry, that seems to have been a red herring of mine. While the intermediate 
executable has ::::::: in its RPATH and looks scary, the installed version is 
fine. I'm re-re-building KDE4 with cmake 2.6.0 on Solaris now to see if I can 
re-find the original problem I was having. I hope not; then you get an "all 
clear" from this niche-market side of the fence.

I imagine there will have to be wholesale updates to CMakeLists.txt, though? 
kdesupport spits out a whole bunch of policy warnings, for instance.
