Comment(by ken@…):

 Please don't hold your breathe waiting for a comment from me - I created
 this ticket in the expectation we would want to move to kde4, but since
 then I've given up on kde, and my current view is that if something
 requires cmake then I won't build it.  This has stopped me looking at
 current versions of one or two packages. To explain - most autotools
 packages have configure scripts that work in known ways.  Cmake is totally
 different, and appeared (when I last built it) to be both determined to do
 things differently, and determined to create static libraries.  For people
 who use windows, no doubt that it acceptable.  For people using libre
 software, it seems like a major step backwards.
