As kde4-config is horribly broken for W32 anyway (the main problem is that
it doesn't understand KDE being relocated to a different path than it was
built for, which is commonly done on W32), KDE's CMake scripts avoid its
use it for W32 builds anyway, so this shouldn't matter at least for MinGW.
It could be a problem for GNU/Linux->GNU/Linux cross builds though. (I'm
not sure anybody tested those at all yet.)

There is experimental support for cross-compiling KDE with cross-MinGW:
