Well, the basic problem is that under Linux you can have a in 
$KDEDIR/lib and a in $KDEDIR/lib/kde3, the latter being modules rather 
than shared libs like plugins, kparts and similar objects.

Under many other platforms _ALL_ shared objects get the 'lib' prefix, leaving 
you with two files in different locations. And to make the disaster 
complete the wrong one is often picked up.

The solution is to NEVER have both a and a (This means that 
we should rename libkopete before we can make Kopete a kdeinit app btw ;-)

What does

   find $KDEDIR -name '*khtmlimagepart*'

return for you?
