we don't do that. We still require only Qt 4.7 and there is one difference in 
build system vs. some depending library. Depending library is nicely handled 
by systems like kdesrc-build. The example kdesrc-buildrc comes with all the 
pieces already there, so if there is really the need I uncomment a part and 
let it build.

For cmake on the other hand I have no idea how to install it without reading 
through the documentation and then I have to adjust all my build scripts to 
take this custom cmake and I have to remember to remove it again once it's in 
the distro.

which doesn't mean we have to update to the latest cmake in town. Given that 
kdelibs is feature frozen anyway I'm personally surprised by the request for 
an updated cmake (though I don't mind as long as it's in distro packages).
