By definition, you compile KDE in the build dir. From your subject, I suppose
you mean "different from the source dir".
Yes, there is interest. I do it about 3 times a day, for the whole KDE CVS
tree (nonbeta and nox excepted, and only 7 languages from i18n). Package
builders do this pretty often, as well.

That's not strange at all -- developers who happen to compile with srcdir ==
builddir tend to create Makefile.am's that don't work right with generated
headers and stuff like that. They tend to get fixed pretty quick.
