If you install plasma5 to a different prefix than /usr polkit won't work.
Both polkit rules and system dbus activated dbus services don't read from
other prefixes as to do so would be a security risk. if you symlink all
things in /prefix/etc and /prefix/share/dbus-1/system-services it should
all work.
