I've been building vanilla kde from:  


I've attached my entire install_log; dependencies are not listed, but 
everything is listed in the order it was built, so it should be a decent 
reference. I've also included the *.cmake files.

Something to note is my deviation with Phonon. If you build against QT's 
Phonon you will not have anything listed in the 'Backend' tab of KDE's 
'Multimedia - KDE Control Module' - you will still be able reach the 
backend settings through qtconfig, though.

If you build/use kdm you may notice that it crashes on logout. I haven't 
bothered to investigate this, but I have noticed this same behaviour on 
debian testing, too.

I'm going to rebuild my desktop soon, I'm just waiting for some Xorg 
packages to be released, but the plan is to build against the 4.6 
release of qt and the latest cmake/boost. Hopefully some useful notes 
come out of this.
