Yeah, but KDE 4 uses CMake which (IMHO) isn't that friendly with known 
env vars (see the phonon thread on -support). Also, see KDE instructions 
which add few switches to find qt in non standard prefix or install 
stuff into correct qt prefix and they wouldn't be needed if Qt is built 
into one standard place. I dislike the idea and I won't support it. You 
can, I won't get in your way.
