Instead of -I /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/ it was -I /usr/local/lib/kde4/plugins/marble. Consequently the QML version of MarbleWidget is now working and I am back on trying to show the GPS position.

I checked MarbleDeclarativeWidget and for example for map interaction there is only zoomIn() and zoomOut(), neither any of the move-methods nor centerOn() is implemented. Is that on purpose or am I missing something? 

So far I mostly  implemented the things I needed for the three example
applications. In the future, all (important) properties and methods
should be exported to QML.

zoom and move actions definitely make sense. Feel free to extend the
class and send patches. Thanks :-)
