Well, if there's demand for it, I don't personally have any objections to
adding it back in. It could go in KDECMakeSettings in e-c-m, although I think
I'd want to check with the kde-core-devel and/or kde-devel lists before doing
a change that will affect such a large number of software projects (after all,
it may cause issues for projects that define an uninstall target themselves).
