Attached is what I have so far for kdesupport.
There are still issues because some of the projects in kdesupport try to
install outside CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX by default, those projects have to be
The file uses the ExternalProject-support from cmake to gather all the
projects into one "superproject".
If you simply build it (cmake; make), it will download, configure and build
During building it will also install them to their install location.
If you just want to have a source package which you can build, there is a
custom target "UpdateAll" provided, which just gets all the sources.
To get a package from that, use the package target.
$ make UpdateAll
$ make package
gives you a KDESupport-1.2.3.tgz, which you can unpack anywhere and configure
there (for all of the included projects at once).
