I tackle this from the packager's perspective: I want to support as many 
environments as possible, and KMyMoney allows me to do so. Think of having the 
following packages (and they exist today):

- KMyMoney
- LibOFX
- AqBanking

Now as a user A I install KMyMoney and LibOFX and I should have OFX support. 
As user B I install the same KMyMoney package as user A together with 
AqBanking and I should have them working together. This requires the packager 
for KMyMoney to compile the package together with LibOFX-devel and AqBanking-
devel being present. I don't want him to add extra switches to cmake to get 
things built. However, for the user who builds from source and does only have 
LibOFX-devel installed, I don't want to have additional steps to disable 
AqBanking support in his build.

Yes, it needs to be updated, and I think there is no need to go through 
Phabricator for it unless you are unsure about the contents and want 
confirmation from the team.

This seems to be a general problem for others as well and of no harm: See for details. So let's put 
this aside for now. Nothing we can do about other than waiting for a fix in

Could be a more modern combination of cmake/make.  Jenkins is still happy ;)

Apparently, not this time. Glad we could solve this one.
