I just decided to keep KDELIBSUFFIX because i am not (yet) in kde development
and did not want to mess things up, but i just don't understand what a quoted
#defined is for, if you need a quoted string from a quoted #define putting 
"\"" STRING "\"" in the code is enough, though getting the non-quoted string
from the quoted #define may be a bit more diffucult...

NP, 'strace konqueror' and 'grep "lib\/" * -R' were enough to get to the 
problem and fix it :-)
