I've needed LIBRARY_PATH before to find the Xorg libraries for at least 
some packages, but my most recent script for kde-4.9.3 didn't need it.

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

       -DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=/etc/kde4     \
       -DDOCBOOKXML_CURRENTDTD_DIR=/usr/share/xml/docbook/xml-dtd-4.5 \
       .. &&

make &&

$SUDO make install

Where $KDE4_PREFIX is /opt/kde and /opt/kde -> /opt/kde-4.9.3
