No, I have no problems with kde-baseapps and turning off tests doesn't change kde-baseapps or help kmix compile.

I got kmix to compile by turning the cmake policy cmake_policy (SET CMP0046 OLD)

kmix sets this policy to new but I've no idea why this wouldn't be a
problem until now, I guess something in kde4 cmake stuff changed (kmix
hasn't changed).  Any ideas Alex?
