What was the problem with them? It ises autotools in KDE:KDE3/ Or the problem is 
with generating scripts, not building?...

No to speak about KDE as a whole, but even minor packages have similar, trivial problems with cmake 
(qt not found, insufficient flags transferred to the linker etc), which I do not know how to solve. 

As cmake does not respect system environment variables, I don't know how to set it up.
