I coppied these two '.a' files from another HLFS system i was preparing for 
home and installed
kdebase-3.4.1. It worked and kdm was installed this time. I have now deleted 
these '.a' files again.
So far, there is no ill-effect is visible. Will report.

I am not sure how tohack kdebase if required.
