I'm looking at tdebase/kioslave/media/mediamanager/CMakeLists.txt. I notice two differences:

Under WITH_HAL, linuxcdpolling.cpp is built but not otherwise. Second, under WITH_HAL, the LINK option includes ${DBUS_TQT_LIBRARIES} but otherwise not.

In other words, when building with WITH_HAL=OFF and WITH_TDEHW=ON, those two differences come into play.

I could try a simple patch to add those options and see what happens. Worse case is tdebase fails to build.
