Hmm, I talked to a Debian-kde guy yesterday and he said the problem ist that 
cmake did some implicit linking which many devs got used to.
However he also said that kde 4.0.68 depends on cmake 2.6, so I guess it is 
built with 2.6. Here i have 2.6-patch 0 RC-8.
The concusion of the debian packagers is that they start sending patches 
upstream to link to every needed library explicitly.

My setup here is a packages-based KDE installation from the Debian 
experimental archive and some apps that are compiled from source.

I do not know, actually. I am just running cmakekde. :)

What do you mean? There's the target_link_libraries() thing in the 
CMakeList.txt file. But since this is already in the diff file, I guess you 
mean something different. :)
