I'm also going to throw this one out for comment - These are the steps I used to compile KDE 2.2beta1 on my computer...It seems to be working great, so the core is good...anyone have any suggestions for additional compile time options?

KDE - Desktop Enviornment for X

version - 2.2beta1
home page - http://www.kde.org
download - ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/2.2beta1/src

installation:
export KDEDIR=/opt/kde &&
echo "/opt/kde/lib" >> /etc/ld.so.conf

Also add /opt/kde/bin to PATH

kdelibs - essential libraries for KDE(requires libaudiofile, libpcre, libxml2):
tar yxf kdelibs-2.2beta1.tar.bz2 &&
cd kdelibs-2.2beta1 &&
./configure --prefix=$KDEDIR --with-gnu-ld --with-ssl-dir=/usr &&
make &&
make install &&
ldconfig

kdebase - core KDE enviornment files(requires LessTif)

cd kdebase-2.2beta1

if make errors out with an error regarding libshadow, perform the following:
ln -s libshadow.so.0 libshadow.so

and re-run make.
