It appears that his kdemacros.h has a weird declaration of KDE_EXPORT, because 
his compiler is aware of visibility attributes, but seems to be reading an 
incorrect attribute.  It would be nice to see either his kdemacros.h or the 
appropriate pre-processed source to knewstuff.h.

Sounds strange though.
