Please not another copy of minimum requires. I think we should have one or two 
places in SVN where we hardcode the minimum version requires of KDE related 
packages (somewhere in kdelibs/cmake/modules comes to my mind) and which you 
can use for reference and which is used for the cmake checks itself, so that 
both are in sync.

I hope it becomes less of a problem when we stop releasing phonon seperately 
and use the Qt version. My hope at least :)
