Well days after my two hour nightmare of trying to get it to work, I can't
remember my problems with it anymore, but I can tell you it was far short of
zero-pain. I had to set environment variables to point to files that
sometimes did and sometimes did not get installed by the various libraries,
and in some cases I had to go an reinstall libraries that I had already
installed without pkg-config. I don't want to imagine what this is like on
non-Linux systems. I think this thing needs to "cook" a little while before
KDE starts using it.
