Then build and install tdegraphics. That becomes the base package. Build scripts for individual apps will be the same with all build options OFF except for the specific app you are building and that option will be ON.

Now I understand why nobody have seen so many errors in CMakefiles
before me and I've got so a lot to fix =)... It's all because
everybody uses such way to build it...

As I mentioned somewhere, I'm doing a gentoo packaging , it means I'm
writing ebuilds, special build scripts which end users runs on their
machines... and it is much more easy to manage them if they will be
building as separate packages...

Take a look into my log in the first message (it's corrupted by mail
sysyem but still readable, here is the normal one: )...
I'm doing the same things...
