I think there is a built in facility of cmake that does exactly this. As I 
thought the current build system was working, I haven't treated changing to 
that as urgent. 

There is other tricky stuff in generate.pl.cmake for finding the Qt and KDE 
headers, whether they are ordinary installed ones, Mac OS X frameworks or a 
qt built in place and not installed. Caleb's recent change to get Mac OS X 
framework headers working, broke the code to get qt in place build headers 
working. I haven't worked out how to get both working at once yet.
