> Hi all,
> I have found recently that I cannot build KDE Runtime. In tracing
> this, I ended up with an obscure error:
> CMake Error at
> /opt/trunk-kde/kde/share/apps/cmake/modules/MacroEnsureVersion.cmake:95
>   NORMALIZE_VERSION Macro invoked with incorrect arguments for macro
> named:
> Call Stack (most recent call first):
>   phonon/CMakeLists.txt:18 (macro_ensure_version)
> This error message actually means that PHONON_VERSION is empty.
> Further diagnosing this, I noticed that Phonon recently made changes
> to where they stored the version string, yet they updated their CMake
> files.
> Digging further, I discovered that CMake wasn't using the new ones,
> because they are being installed to $prefix/share/phonon-buildsystem/
> instead of the standard location ( $prefix/share/apps/cmake )
> Can someone explain to me why Phonon is so special?
> Note that if I don't get a reply, I will be reverting commit
> 1602df28e8b82aeeecb7cfb3fe1af52790be02d3 to Phonon in 24 hours in
> order to restore my ability to build Phonon.
