Consider this: KDE is completely cmake based. Slackware 14.1 comes 
with cmake All of the KDE packages compiled for the 
official Slackware 14.1 release. I'm assuming without these 
problems. Convincing the Slackware maintainer that cmake 
is problematic needs a good explanation.

That KDE compiled without failure and Trinity does not compile 
leads to an obvious question of what are the Trinity folks doing 
"wrong" that the KDE folks are doing "right"?

Right now I don't understand the issues involved. I'm not a 
developer or coder. I'm a packager and tester who is devoted to 
keeping Trinity alive. These cmake problems are above and beyond my 
full understanding. I can't ask the Slackware maintainer to update 
to cmake "just because." Trinity is not "officially" 
supported in any distro. Emphasis on "officially." Asking distro 
maintainers to update cmake needs a clear explanation --- something 
I am not able to do. Somebody who understands the details of all of 
these problems could write something that I could forward to the 
Slackware maintainer.

That said, as I reported in a previous post, I still can't build 
Trinity after I updated to on my own. :-)
