It seems i'm the only one finding it weird having to checkout completely 
unrelated stuff (kdevelop 3 plugins, kdevelop 4 plugins, kate plugins, other 
stuff i can't name) making up 84M just to compile icemon (41files). Having to 
meet the requirements of all those downloaded stuff i don't want which is 
really compiled (kde3 plugins luckily aren't compiled by default) so the stuff

Generous offer but i think i have to politely decline. I'm somehow convinced i 
can manage that stuff. Superstitous i know,

Make Error at kdevelop4-extra-plugins/controlflowgraph/CMakeLists.txt:9 
  Could not find module FindGraphViz.cmake or a configuration file for
  package GraphViz.

  Adjust CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to find FindGraphViz.cmake or set GraphViz_DIR to
  the directory containing a CMake configuration file for GraphViz.  The file

what directories i really need before i checkout. which i cant know until i 

It would be much easier if this stuff would be standalone with some convenience 
makefiles. The same way kdebase does it.

But i take the request back. Somehow everyone else seems to live with that 
stuff so it has to be a personal problem of mine.
