probabaly the more official way to compile "apt-get source" package is
: dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc
you need to have installed fakeroot.

After compile you could just find the kwin executable and cp kwin to /usr/bin.

So the following can be bypassed...
> mkdir build

> cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
> make kwin
> cd kwin
> sudo make install
