Here is one of the comments in my blog:

"Well, that would all be nice and well, but the branch needs to a)
compile with aqbanking out of the box, which is hindered by cmake
problems (I had to rename the 2 relevant cmake module files so that
the names are ALLCAPS) and b) installing shoudl also work as make
install is misfireing due to a missing file:

CMake Error at kmymoney/plugins/ibanbicdata/germany/cmake_install.cmake:56
file INSTALL cannot find

I used a clean Kubuntu 14.04.1 install in a virtualbox with apt-get
build-dep kmymoney and the most current add-onlinebanking branch from
the git repo. I will post a message to the mailinglist detailing the
errors later in the day."

Be happy, I hadn't had so many comments in a post in ages. People are
really interested on this. Prepare to be bombarded with bugs and
support requests.
