Hi Alex,
Hi Ben,

Happy New Year, for a start! :)

Well, off-list I already had contacted Ben because of this issue. See this:

So, I really wonder what’s going on here, as it doesn’t hit all projects! kstars fails,
but marble - for instance - still builds fine without the need to mess with these vars!

I can't find KDE_INSTALL_DIRS_NO_DEPRECATED in CMakeCache.txt of kstars at all, so I assume
that it is not set.

	Does this mean it IS a bug for kstars and all the other projects after all?
