I think I've figured that out.  My script used:

./configure --prefix=$KDE_PREFIX --disable-debug \
             --disable-dependency-tracking --enable-final

The enable final combines several .cc files into one and compiles all of them. 
That way the header files only need to be read once.  I'm guessing here, but one 
of the other files may be including linux/limits.h and that defines PATH_MAX.

Try adding --enable-final to the configure and see if it still fails for you.
