Hmm, you are correct. I was given a list of conflicts between kdelibs3 and kdelibs4,
(committed to kdelibs/CONFLICTS) but that list contains all the development tools,
which are not a problem since only the development tools for one of
the two kde versions can be installed at a given time in a given prefix
(due to the .so symlinks).

Now what... should I revert the kconfig_compiler move? 
Being in libexec doesn't really hurt either -- except for people trying to build their
own kde app with something else than cmake (good luck to them...)
