For Gear the minimum versions are changed by the individual projects, last 
time I looked there was also no consistent naming of these CMake variables, 
not have a  'KF_MAJOR_VERSION' variable at all. (Actually I never seen a 
KF_MAJOR_VERSION variable before, so maybe only Kate?).
For reference Frameworks right now requires at least Qt 6.5.
I think explicitely setting QT_MAJOR_VERSION to 6 is not needed, including ECM 
with 5.240 will enable using Qt 6 install paths. (Of course it doesn't hurt to 
be explicit)
