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.
