With all this we're only back to square one, KEntryMap is not exported, the
unittest needs it, so the Windows error must still be there.
But it turns out that the unittest only tests kentrymap, nothing else from
KConfigCore. So the solution is to not link to KConfigCore at all.
Can someone test on Windows? It should work (TM) ;)
