Graph not updating on startup

You're right, I thought I had grabbed 2.0.8 from the ubuntu ppa but I had
only gotten 2.0.3 from the debian repo. I have several debian systems where
I am happy to pull from the ubuntu ppa but I have another system where a
kst binary isn't available at all so I'd like to learn to compile and it
uses qt5 instead of qt4.  How do I effect the cmake switch mentioned on the
kst source page?
