The only thing that comes to mind is the possibility of using the
"CMAKE_MODULE_PATH" setting as well.

>From looking at the kdesrc-build code, we set CMAKE_MODULE_PATH for Qt
modules, but don't also do the same (by default) for the module being
built.

For the majority of KDE code this shouldn't matter, as CMAKE_MODULE_PATH
is used for the "Module" mode of CMake's find_package(), which most code
no longer uses. Instead we use "Config" mode for most find_package()
calls (which uses CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH).  See the find_package
documentation for details. [1]

CMake will use "Module" mode by default for find_package() calls that
use the "simplified" syntax and for which it can find matching CMake
modules. In the right setup that means it's possible for CMake to find
different packages depending only on whether the find_package() call
uses a simplified or complex syntax, which could explain why some
modules found the wrong module and some did not.

To confirm this, you could try exporting CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to something
like "$HOME/kde/usr/lib64/cmake" manually, before running kdesrc-build
for kauth.  Though I'm planning just to modify kdesrc-build to set the
variable regardless just in case.

To avoid --refresh-build you can call "kdesrc-build --reconfigure kauth"
to re-run CMake first without deleting the build directory.
