You are explaining this in two lines and I spent a half day try to fix
it and especially the research took a while (I am new to kde-dev).
I had success at 07:25h GMT+2 with my packages - by commenting the
line containing "XcursorGetDefaultSize".

I am not working in a pbuilder-environment (planned) and _have_
By-the-way, I compared the source with that from kde.org itself.
Checked out what the Debian-build modifies...
I think that the developer are not beware of the problem because it is
bypassed (no libxcursor-dev installed).
I am only guessing... for me the variable assignment is strange.
// cursor_size = XcursorGetDefaultSize( QX11Info::display());
Again my tea is cold, Aaaaargh.
Find that brain-bug and ...
