I tried for several days now, and until yesterday it didn't work. I don't
consider the patches essential, well, most of them. But I'm trying since
many weeks to compile qt-copy, kdelibs, kdebase, ... and as long as I
couldn't get these three to work even halfway, I didn't see the point
in messing with code in e.g. kdeartwork. Note that I don't complain
about that. *I* am patient. (Also, I don't claim that there's a lot
of my code in KDE. Most of it is already ported or didn't need to get
ported. There's only a screensaver missing. I basically needed to
rewrite it, and did already. But I can't do the final bits, as there
is no working screensaver to look into as a template.

Sure, but a screensaver needs some framework, no? And even if not:
why do suddenly single apps need to be ported already, when kdebase
isn't even?

I wasn't there and nobody informed me.  :-P

That's OK. But you said:

which I find a bit premature, if not offensive.
