Hm, but kdelibs KDE/4.7 has (and builds+installs for me by default) 
experimental/libkactivities, isn't that the "official" version of 
libkactivities to use?

I understood it the other way round:
that code which relies on some other modul has to have it's own Find*.cmake 
for that modul (unless it is that common that cmake has it installed by 
default). All the Find*.cmake in all the KDE modules at least always supported 
me in this understanding :) So turns out I am wrong?
