It didn't go past the configure.   It always stopped at kdebase configure when 
it found no kde plugins. I just tweaked kdelibs to build widgets with the 
default visibility flag. It was then I managed to build kdebase.

Even after building kdebase I got problems with plugin loading though 
(including konqueror), but I had no much time to test that one. As soon as I 
get a decent build with 3.3.4 I'll try to rebuild it in a separate dir using 
3.4.x again, and I'll let you know

Thanks for all
