in kdelibs we require since more than 2 years cmake .2.6.4, since then many 
improvements and fixes have gone into cmake, and we cannot make use of them.

These are e.g. 
* builtin automoc
* support for creating proper Config.cmake files
and many many more.

So, after the discussion we had here on this list,
starting October 30th CMake 2.8.8 or newer will be required for building 
kdelibs 4.10.

If it is not yet available in your distribution, simply wget and untar it:

$ wget
$ su
$ cd /opt
$ tar -zxvf path/to/cmake-2.8.9-Linux-i386.tar.gz
$ /opt/cmake-2.8.9-Linux-i386/bin/cmake ...all your arguments
