Sorry if I was unclear: Its not kdesvn-build causing this. Its a qt-copy
patch (0250) that changes syncqt - the perl script that creates the
buildtree - in a way that causes include/QtCore/headers.pri to be
missing some files.

Maybe I can do a couple of tests later with syncqt to see why it strips
files from the lists...
