Aha, the problem was actually that the "checking for kde plugins" step
fails if you are working with a qt which was built without the -mt
option. Even if you successfully installed kdelibs to it (which might
mean it won't work properly), the configure of kdebase fails at that

rebuilding qt with -mt (and then rebuilding kdelibs) made it possible
to configure kdebase.

I suggest changing the message that configure reports:

If you did install kdelibs, then the Qt version that is picked up by
this configure is either

a. not configured with the -mt option or b.

not the same version you used to compile kdelibs.
