If you look closer Julien already demonstrated that this is the case
(which tells this). However FindAutomoc4 doesn't use PATH at all, it
simply tries a couple of hardcoded and adjustable paths and tries to
find a Automoc4Config.cmake there. In particular unless one sets for
example CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH it'll search in /usr/lib and
/usr/lib/automoc4, which will contain the debian version.

So the solution is to set CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH at cmake time or as
environment variable to /home/devel/kde.


You will be given a post of trust and responsibility.
