running application from $kdedir with multiple kde installs

I am running a debian box here, with kde installed from the distro. I also 
have another KDE self compiled and installed into /usr/local. I have a new 
script which sets the environment, and then calles $KDEDIR/bin/startkde. This 
script is called from GDM.

Now, if I open  konsole, I see the environment I expect to. But I think that 
kdekstop does not. I run (for example): kword and I get the version 
from /usr/bin and not the one from /usr/local/kde/bin.

For this reason, I can type some applications in the krun window, and they 
will not run, since they are kde3.2 applications which try to load 3.3 

Is this a bug in my config, or should I report this as a bug?
