This is a side effect of removing LIBALKIMIA_INCLUDE_DIR applied with

Any static library build in kmymoney does not link to alkimia and
therefore does not have access to alkimia headers, which may be included
in kmymoney related headers.

The solutions for this issue I see are:
1. fix the dependency chain in kmymoney by adding target_link_lkibraries
to all static library targets or
2. revert the mentioned commit and add a note to the readme, that,
although include headers are automatically added by linking to
Alkimia::alkimia, there may be cases where adding LibAlkimia_INCLUDE_DIR
may be required.
