Yes, I always move the examples/tutorials out of the source dirs and
keep them, I should have mentioned that they don't get installed
anywhere.  I guess /usr/doc or some such would be a good place.  I put
them in $HOME.  I agree that they should not be skipped over, but I
hack on kde a bit, so I might be a bit biased.  Leaving the note about
not building them is the best way to go if people want to save compile
time/disk space.
