I've built 4.2.1, 4.2.2 and from kde-svn. The system has been pretty stable, I 
do get some random lockups, but  I spend all of my time in kde, so I'm not 
sure if it's a system related lockup or a kde one.

When I first got started I looked at 
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/ticket/2453 and http://techbase.kde.org 
to sort out the build order, but for the most part cmake will tell you what's 
required and what's suggested/recommended as you go along. Techbase has a lot 
of information, and I'm still just scratching the surface.

Also, Ken has kindly posted some great notes, which I've referenced more than
