Can you please explain what you need exactly ?
Have you seen my announcement for KDE "SuperBuilds" ?

You can use them e.g. to build the complete kdegraphics (similar to kdesrc-
build) and you can also use it to create just a kdegraphics source tarball: 
"make UpdateAll && make package", which can then be unpacked anywhere and 

Right now there is only a CMakeLists.txt for kdegraphics, because I'd like to 
get more feedback before putting more work into it.
