 I know how to do it (at least I think I know), but there are lots of 
developers who don't. They are just C++ coders. Some don't even know 
how to write configure checks or's as we have KDevelop 
generating Makefiles and you can use the templates to start a new 
 And there are other issues as well, like having a non-customized 
environment when you create a package, otherwise you can end up with 
code that works for you, but doesn't work for anyone else. If the 
application is in a main KDE module, this is not a problem, as (I 
believe) the packaging is done on a machine which is not heavily 
customized regarding the installed libraries and where it is guaranteed 
that the KDE base libraries (and parts) and their requirements are of 
the last stable version.
