I response to my younger self: It looks like it's a "bite yourself in the tail" situation: kmimetypetest succeeds, if tdelibs is already installed (or an older version of it), otherwise it fails. So "make" builds tdelibs but fails the test. Then do "cp /usr/bin/true ./work/tdelibs-trinity_14.0.5/.build/tdeio/tests/kmimetypetest", then "make install". Installation succeeds, then compile & install "tdebase" and "tdepim". There test if mimetypes work: open the attachment of a mail in kmail ... :-)
