Command Explanations

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release: This switch is used to apply higher level of the compiler optimizations.

-DLIB_INSTALL_DIR=lib: This switch is used to get libraries to install to $KF5_PREFIX/lib instead of $KF5_PREFIX/lib64 on a 64 bit system.

-DBUILD_TESTING=OFF: This switch is used to prevent building test programs and libraries that are of no use to an end user.
