 Hello
 
 I'm trying to build the latest kdebase-runtime 4.3  with phonon from
 qt-4.5 - at least thats what kde wants me to do
 
No, KDE does not say that.  You should build Qt -no-phonon if you are 
using Qt only for KDE.

 cmake finds headers/libraries but then build stops with:
 
 phonon/kded-module/phononserver.h:26:36: error:
 Phonon/ObjectDescription: No such file or directory
 
 It seems to want to use phonon from qt in /opt rather than the other
 version I have installed in /usr. I understand this is right, is it?.
 
 
 From the cmake configure output it is finding the version under qt,
 but still fails to find the above file(it exists) when compiling.
 
 Can anyone suggest a reason for this on LFS?  Has anyone had similar
 problems?
 
It is possible that this will work if Qt was built with Phonon, but 
since Qt Phonon is not what KDE requires, you MUST install the KDE 
Phonon package:

ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/phonon/4.3.0/phonon-4.3.0.tar.bz2

You should install this with the same: -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path 
as you will use for KDE.

Since there are other packages required, I would just install KDESupport 
which is available only from SVN:

http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4/LFS#Library_Requirements

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/kdesupport-for-4.3/kdesupport

You need the other stuff which is listed there as well!

You also need: shared-mime-info and Boost.  Note the instructions 
for getting KDE packages to build against Boost built from source.

 To build against the phonon included with qt you will need to create a
 link: qtdir/include/Phonon - qtdir/include/phonon/Phonon (at least form
 qt-4.5.2, maybe .1 on, otherwise you'll have to sort out the camel case
 headers however you see fit.

As you say all it required in the end was a link to phonon in upper case, i.e. 
/opt/qt/include/Phonon  /opt/qt/include/phonon

I'd considered it to be a case problem originally but dismissed it and tried to 
alter other files.

 If I recall kde packages up their own qt copy and a modified version of
 phonon. The last time I used the packaged version of phonon I downloaded
 it from debian, but it can also be checked out with subversion.
 
  Anyway, it IS finding phonon in qt, but NOT seeing the above files
   for some reason.

 link: qtdir/include/Phonon - qtdir/include/phonon/Phonon (at least form
 qt-4.5.2, maybe .1 on, otherwise you'll have to sort out the camel case
 headers however you see fit ;.) I've built this way for a number of
 months but some functionality is lost. For example, in the kde settings
 menu under multimedia I don't have any backends listed, but everything
 has been working for me, and the phonon settings are still accessible
 with qtconfig.
 
 Anyhow, that's my limited experience.

Many thanks will try that
