I fully agree with Markus. Since no one in the core team is familiar with
cmake I think its not an option.
distutils is our only alternative. Other than that we could copy the sh
gnome-autogen.sh script.

I do understand why KDE react badly on having to install "gnome-common"
since it has "gnome in it" but I think developers will understand that its
only for building from source.

I think we can drop this then.

Title:
  problem building from trunk in KDE

Status in Zeitgeist Framework:

Bug description:
  Building zeitgeist from trunk requires gnome-common since we use 
gnome-autogen.sh
While this makes our lives easy in GNOME, KDE people don't really want to 
install it. So there must be another way to build from trunk easily.
Building from a source package works. But again some devs want trunk. Lets make 
this easier for them.
