I couldn't see a way this late into the release.

Ideally, kdegraphics-mobipocket should be creating a library and
installing it. It currently does not do that. One could make it
install the library and the headers, but then there are issues of
binary compatibility. Also, I'll need to ask the author.

The copied code is about 500 lines.
