Well, did you read the sample kdesvn-buildrc in the light of the recent 

it contains lines such as: 

configure-flags --enable-debug=full
cxxflags -g -pipe -march=i686

Thats wrong on so many levels: 

- first of all it shouldn't be cxxflags. we have C code as well

- hardcoding -march is wrong

- setting -g after --enable-debug=full is plain stupid, because it overwrites 
what --enable-debug=full already did. 

- Also, full is a VERY bad option, as it disables important WARNINGS. 

etc etc.
