I was thinking there are two or three way of installing ḰDE, to /, to /usr/
local and to a non-system prefix (under /opt or home-dir). It wouldn't be too
much to at least describe what configuration or manual corrections post
install is needed for those combinations.

The files weren't even generated in the build directory, and I couldn't find
commands supposed to make them in the makefiles. So I assume cmake somehow
doesn't know what it is supposed to do. On reason this can go wrong is because
kauth has multiple different backend modes, and only the polkit-1 mode needs
these files, kauth did detect the correct mode during its cmake setup, so I am
gusesing something during kauth install needs to install cmake files that are
found by cmake during powerdevil building.
