Maybe CPack can help? You'll probably find some resistance from KDE folks to 
that idea though (there has been some when a discussion about CPack was held in 
the past), given that it the packages it produces won't be complying to any 
guideline. (I definitely _don't_ recommend installing RPMs generated by CPack 
or any other specfile autogenerator, at least not to folks who don't _really_ 
know what they're doing.) But it might solve your usecase, and CPack is also 
being looked at as a possible option by the Window$ and Mac folks, so maybe 
CPack support is going to be added to KDE after all.
