FindQt4 package fails because qmake is from Qt5.

See more details from upstream bug I submitted:

I submitted a patch fixing the issue to upstream (see the link above). It would be nice to include the patch in the Archlinux package until the issue is resolved in upstream.

Additional info:
* cmake-2.8.10-2

This task depends upon

Let's see how cmake devs say about it.

Also /usr/share/apps/cmake/modules/FindQt4.cmake from kdelibs should be patched somehow (yet differently since the file is quite different, probably from the old cmake).

I'd suggest we just switch the list of qmakes it tests to first test for qmake-qt4, and then the rest. That is the easiest way, obviously not for global usage, but would fix things on Arch, at least until the upstream makes the possibility of qmake being from Qt5 into account.

After applying the above two patches to FindQt4 from both cmake and kdelibs I am now able to compile kde stuff from aur once again.

Damn... I said above since the attachments are above in the add comment form. Well, I hope you get the point :)
