[PATCH] making KDE more independent from X11

i got convinced to work over it once more. i will probably add a dummy 
KStartupInfo class, which does nothing, so that we don't have to manage the 
ifdefs for that class, but only the dummy class.

for the rest i think i will add it tomorrow and i/we will look after the 
ifdefs until we find a better solution and fix them in the cases where other 
people break them.

the first goal is not to change anything in the x11 case, and in the other 
cases the work will be done by us "non-x11" people...
