The libqgis_customwidgets is a new library which allow using specific QGIS widgets directly in Qt Designer (if compiled with Qt4).
Now, this lib needs to be in Qt plugin’s directory to work properly. So this will require to run make as install as root.

You can disable this by running cmake with -DWITH_CUSTOM_WIDGETS=FALSE

Regarding the second problem described by Richard it should be fixed. pyuic will not bug anymore, even if QGIS is not installed.

I don’t know what’s the best default value for this library installation. 
But it might be better to reset it to false, if one wants that the default install can be run not being root.
