I've been building KDE on an amd64 pretty much daily for a year and a half 
now. The bits that matter to me get fixed (libs base pim accessibility addons 
admin bindings edu games graphics multimedia network sdk toys utils office 
develop webdev -- though I probably don't have every dependency installed for 
everything, so some stuff gets skipped anyway). Digikam (see below) doesn't 
fall in that category.

As far as pipe dreams go, it would be useful if portability was assured across 
the OSsen KDE supports, or apidox were maintained across all libs in all 
modules. What exactly do you want? The output of configure shipped to you so 
you can check that nothing has ended up in DO_NOT_COMPILE that shouldn't? 
This presumes that the configure output is done nicely and tells the user 
that something is going to be skipped. Can you tell _why_ the plugins aren't 
compiled in 64-bit mode?
