I found another error in the configure output showing it simply was not  
finding any hint of Qt5.  Passing '--with-qt5-qmake="qmake -qt=5"  
--with-qt5-moc="moc -qt=5"' to ./configure allowed it to configure and  
compile successfully.

With that done, I was able to compile KMM, but I'll save those issues  
for a new thread.
