I do 'make && make install' in subdirs of kde packages all the time, but 
I am also running 100%-from-sources KDE. At any rate if you do a build 
of all of kdebase /once/, then doing 'make && make install' in only the 
subdir(s) you need should be fine (I think). Either way you have to run 
top-level configure, of course. :-)
