Yes, I built it, and it enabled kwin to compile.  Hmm, I did not
spot that 5.4.1 had been released, I built 5.4.0.

Other things which have changed between 5.11/5.3.1 and 5.14.0/5.4.0  :
kio-extras is now part of 'applications' (15.08.0 when I built it),
and baloo is now part of kf5 and now requires lmdb (I used

Il Porcupino Nil Sodomy Est! (if you will excuse my latatian)
  aka "The hedgehog song"
